Hurricane Earl is gathering some serious strength. It is incredible what a difference a day makes when you’re dealing with this force of nature. Please keep a watchful eye on this one...not sure if Earl will go quietly into the night like Danielle. Earl – “Go placidly amid the noise and haste…and remember what peace there may be in silence…”

No plant life, but water has been found on the moon recently. Details here: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/LCROSS/main/prelim_water_results.html

It has moved north and weakened (colder waters up there). The fate of hurricanes can be followed here: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/hurricanes/main/index.html

It's amazing to be able to twitter an astronaut. I am a baby boomer and followed all of Apollo Missions. Question? Did Astronauts find some dead plant life on the moon? It's a memory that stays fuzzy. Thanks mainepossum
