My wife and I enjoy our Hawaii vacations. But they're kind of expensive. So it's nice when Hawaii makes an effort to come to us. Some of its weather, at least.
This is today's satellite image from a free Mac app, Swackett, that I installed when Apple unveiled the new App Store feature. It shows the Northwest being hit by a stream of warm watery weather that is bubbling out of the vicinity of the Hawaiian islands.
That explains why the temperature is a relatively balmy 55 degrees at this afternoon moment. I can almost pretend I'm in Hawaii. On a rainy, overcast, chilly beach.
Well, on the bright side, it's a no-cost vacation -- courtesy of the Pineapple Express (which may not be in full operation in this particular weather system, but it sure feels like some sort of PE).
