IF ONLY WE'D ADOPTED KYOTO....:

Jupiter's smaller spot getting redder (AP, 10/11/06)

The little brother to the Great Red Spot on Jupiter is getting redder and stronger.

Both spots are actually fierce storms in Jupiter's atmosphere. While the Great Red Spot -- at three times the size of Earth -- is much more noticeable, strange things are happening to the smaller spot.

Just a little more than a year ago, the Earth-sized spot was a pale white. Now it matches the reddish hue of its bigger sibling and boasts 400 mile per hour winds, according to new data from the Hubble Space Telescope.


If Al Gore were president those spots would have cleared up by now.

If they get 1x4x9, I'm going to be concerned.

Yes sireee, it's gotta be a plot to depress voter turn out... o wait, the election is still a few weeks away.

BTW, today is a "white letter day" here in Western Michigan. October 12 is now the date of the earliest measurable snow fall.

And it wasn't that stupid powdery snow that floats lazily downward and melts when it hits the sidewalk - this was thick and wet, final tally was half an inch to 3/4", and it's still on the ground a day later. Next week the temperature's supposed to be around 70 - love that Michigan weather.
