Well this is peachy. We are now under a tropical storm watch. I can't really believe Tropical Storm Laura is going to amount to much but I've been wrong before on this rather touchy subject. After Hurricane Irma I guess we will all be a bit touchy and now we have the coronavirus stuff to deal with as well it all seems rather too much. I'm working through Monday, I've put our outdoor stuff away so all I have to do is figure out how to get to and from work without being blown over.
The National Hurricane Center definition of a watch is as follow:
A Tropical Storm Watch is issued when a tropical cyclone containing winds of 34 to 63 kt (39 to 73 mph) or higher poses a possible threat, generally within 48 hours. These winds may be accompanied by storm surge, coastal flooding, and/or river flooding. The watch does not mean that tropical storm conditions will occur.

I very much enjoy Michael Kenna’s Instagram account where he takes landscape photos of great delicacy and simplicity frequently with an unfashionable soft focus. His photos are Superb examples of a photographer giving free rein to an inner voice we can only see through his images. In defiance of Instagram norms I mediate on his pictures for minutes at a time most happily between 911 calls. Check this out and then add his Instagram account to your list:
