What do you think of when you hear the words WATCH OUT? I've been asking family members that for a few days trying to come up with my idea for this week. There were some good suggestions, but since the news has been full of hurricanes, at least here on the east coast, I decided to do another wind map. This is about the only pretty thing that comes along with a hurricane. And something we definitely want to WATCH OUT for if we're planning a picnic.
It took about an hour to do this in my 3.5 x 5 sketchbook with a variety of fine tip markers. It's actually kind of relaxing. (Especially when listening to a baseball game in the background.) I loosely follow what has been posted on the Weather NJ site as you can see below.
You can see some others of these that I've done by clicking here.
I just read that Maria has left Puerto Rico totally without electricity and it will take a very long time to get the grid up again. Our thoughts and prayers are with them all, as well as those still recovering from Harvey and Irma. New Jersey got a glancing from Jose, but he's still hanging around and may hook up with Maria spawning who knows what! So we definitely will WATCH OUT.
