The sky was red-pink at sunrise this morning.
After five days of absolutely clear, hot weather the clouds are here in advance of Hurricane Earl. By the time Earl gets here he'll be downgraded to a tropical storm. The wind out there in the Gulf of Maine will be 50-65 knots (57-74 mph) with waves 18-28 feet.
(p.s. Here on land it will rain from midnight Fri to noon Sat with wind gusting to 50 mph. Not bad.)
