They need to move that dark brown at least 90 miles further east to include Biloxi.I submit, for your consideration:
Absolutely true! Large man-made installations like that create their own micro-climates.Also, I’ve spent over half of my career working in a massive refinery with little concealing the horizon. Any given summer day a storm (heck, even just a shade cloud) can be seen approaching from the west. Focus on work for 20 minutes or so. Look back up to see the storm has split and quite literally gone around the refinery and conjoined again to the east. I attribute MUCH to the heats of the refining process. Many colossal furnaces/boilers/heaters, thermal oxidizer/flares/scrubbers, and heat exchangers/towers/cooling towers exist in this refinery and the surrounding plants of various processes.
We are due for a pair of double digit days here in Portland. And then it will likely be in the high 80's-90's for the rest of the month. Such is August in the PNW. Fortunately, it's only August, not continuing through September and into October like in SoCal. The rains will return.
Have you ever met an Italian?
I keed. Besides, I'm part Italian. The shoe part. And while shoes are not technically part of your body, I love 'em so much I treat them as such.
