VIDEO: Space Station View: Hurricane Irene /my door

Hurricane Irene- read the sign!
Aboard the International Space Station, an Expedition 28 crew member captured views of intensifying Hurricane Irene from an altitude of 225 miles at 3:33 p.m. EDT on Aug. 22, 2011, as the tropical system passed to the north of Hispaniola. The National Hurricane Center is forecasting a track that would take Irene near to or east of the Florida peninsula as a major hurricane on Friday with a possible landfall along the southeastern United States on Saturday. For more info on Hurricane Irene, go to the NASA Hurricane page: www.nasa.gov/hurricane
RAINS- The outer bands of Hurricane Irene's bands brought rains in the Washington, DC area around 11am, when Irene's center was some 380 miles to the south-southeast. Irene is a huge storm, about 1/3rd the size of the U.S. East coast.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
