    Wow - fantastic photo Will! Makes the 'little' waterspouts I've seen look down right tame :)

    Thats a shot, that was circulated during the Isabel storm as being of the eye of Morehead City. That is not the case, though.

    No pictures of your last storm Steve? It seems our weather is hitting everyone else the last few years. Hope all is well in the Northeast.

    Gary,
    All is well - you only sent snow and wind this time. We had 10-12" on the island, nothing dramatic unless you were on the road at the same time as an SUV driven by someone who thinks 4-wheel drive means they can brake just as well as in the dry.
    Frikking idiots.... Not much better or worse than those who think ABS will stop them in the same distance as on dry pavement, when they are on sheet ice (almost had a nasty accident there)
    And I thought English drivers were bad in the snow. ;-P
    Steve
