Click the picture or click here to enlarge. The picture shows Isaac on the left side, Hurricane Kirk, center left – Category 1 and Tropical Storm (soon to be hurricane) Leslie, bottom right. Kirk will eventually head toward Ireland and the United Kingdom as a windy, wet low pressure system. Leslie could pass east of Maine into the Canadian Maritime Provinces. On the right we have a MODIS Satellite image centered over Lake Michigan. Despite the drought, the land is basically green. You can easily pick out Chicago, Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo – also the sand dunes at Silver Lake, Mason Co. and Sleeping Bear. Here’s the MODIS picture of Lake Huron, Lake Erie, Lake Ontario and Lake Superior (yesterday).
