We had some interesting weather on Monday. A few waterspouts formed out in the atoll. There was no damage or injuries since they never hit land. Perhaps this is what occurred at Tern Island last year that caused all of the damage?
One thing that some of you may be interested in is the murals that hung in the Midway Theater. They have been removed and will be displayed at the Pacific Aviation Museum in Pearl Harbor where a lot more people will be able to appreciate them. Here is a story and photos:
The waterspout isn't very large in this photo, but you can still see it out in the lagoon. It's not as big as the tornadoes that I used to see in North Dakota when I was a storm spotter, but that's perfectly fine with me.
The albatross chicks are really thinning out in the parade field now.
Now that there aren't as many birds around, the grass finally can stand up. When the adults return in the fall, they'll stomp it all down again and it will almost look mowed.
