Now, I realize that this is only a coincidence, but it's pretty spooky just the same. I may never look at a weather map again without seeing something like this watching me.

Hurricane Matthew arrived near the end of 2016, the first Category 5 storm since Felix in 2007. Matthew caused catastrophic damage and severe loss of life numbering in the hundreds. The impoverished island nation of Haiti bore the brunt, with casualty estimates ranging from around 500 to over 1,300 people.
As Matthew made landfall in Haiti on October 4, the infrared image above was rendered by a NASA weather satellite. The storm’s shape bears an obvious resemblance to that of a grinning skull, seen in profile, with the figurative “eye” of the skull being the literal eye of the storm.Coincidence? Certainly. Spooky as hell? We will let you be the judge.
I hate to say it, but here in Houston, we have dodged the bullet for several years now. The law of averages say that this may just be the year we get hit with another big storm. I hope not!
Coffee out on the patio this morning.
