Tropical Storm Kyle Forming In the Caribbean

It's just a matter of time.

Looking better and better all night on satellite imagery. The planes went in and found it to be close but no cigar.

It has banding, a strong, condensed center and looks like a totally different system than it did earlier this afternoon when they were out there trying to figure it all out.

Some real possibility here that it could and I do mean *could* affect the Eastern Seaboard later this week. Some chances it could go in and make landfall in a similar track to Hanna but much stronger.

So.. keep watching because I do believe Tropical Storm Kyle is somewhere down there playing off the coast of Puerto Rico!

Still jazzed the Fins beat New England at New England 35-13 and those 13 points don't really tell the whole story.


Also.. some info below for donating to charities helping people in the affected path of Ike. Give what you can.. even if every person gave a can of corn or a $2 it would make a difference. Sometimes it's not about the amount you give but how many people give that makes the difference!

As for Ike in Texas

With the Jewish High Holidays coming up being able to help people in need of many forms of help as well as providing meals and just the little things to make life normal at a time when nothing is normal. Some how hurricanes and the Jewish Holidays always seem to come hand in hand as it's that time of year. It was during the Sukkos after Hurricane Andrew that the city trucks came to haul away the debris in front of our house.. a big step to being normal again!

By November we should all be able to give thanks the hurricane season is over and set about to rebuild, clean up and prepare better for the following hurricane season.
