Big stinky puffs of hot air surround this whole story. Mark Forbes can talk all he wants, but there will never be a permanent, modern facility for the Guam Museum. The political will is not there, and the funds are definitely not there. And the way GovGuam is circling the drain, the money will never be there.
Sorry for the long delay between posts. If you catch this page at a bad time it will look pretty horrendous. I’m trying to get a feel for customizing this template and other possible goodies. Don’t worry though, I actually plan to start attending to this weblog real soon. Just give me some more time to monkey around.
I just know the movie will suck, but boy oh boy, that Star Wars Episode III trailer sure looks good.
Found a couple interesting satellite images from the past couple years.
- Satellite Images: Typhoon pongsona (31w) near northern mariana islands. Yes, the infamous Pongsona that wreaked such havoc on the island in December 2002. I still shudder thinking about that one. I’m pretty sure this photo was taken on the morning of December 7th, probably just about the time I was checking the satellite loop and realizing the direness of the situation.
- Satellite Images: Eruption of anatahan volcano, northern mariana islands. And here’s a good view of the volcanic smog and haze that I was complaining about a couple months ago. It’s pretty easy to see how the haze and ash distribute across the area, drifting downwind towards Rota and Guam.
There are a few other interesting photos from the Marianas area available on the site, mostly typhoons and tropical storms.
