“The mystery of migrating monarch butterflies has captured the attention of people throughout the world. East of the continental divide in North America, monarchs generally migrate to central Mexico from as far away as Ontario, Canada. Monarchs west of the divide fly to the coast of California to spend the winter. They cluster together on tree limbs during the winter months in California by the thousands, and in Central Mexico by the millions.”

Golden Brodie sniffs out hurricane names 2017

Ok… my dog mind thought that each time a hurricane presented itself in the Atlantic…well…a bunch of people just decided on the spot what to name this horrible thing. But no…that’s so incorrect.

The World Meteorological Organization selects the names and the names are in rotation every six years…get it…rotation.  Best part of this name game…any hurricane that is really nasty and destructive…that given hurricane name is retired…so goodbye Harvey.  Prayers going out to all in the aftermath of Harvey and to those in the path of Hurricane Irma.

Long lasting through November
