I was checking NOAA just now (Insomnia!!! Whoo Hoo!!!) and saw there’s a giant bohonkus storm that’s rolling across the Atlantic. It’s the one on the lower right in the next photo.
It doesn’t look too bad over the ocean, but using my Photoshop ninja skills, I put it over the Gulf of Mexico…
… and, as it is right now, the storm would take up the entire Gulf of Mexico. So how big is it over land?
Offhand, it looks like the storm would completely cover Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas and Mississippi. Five states underneath one storm.
That’s a big damn storm.
And don’t storms gather strength and cohesion as they travel across the ocean during this time of year?
