penguingirl's tumbling thoughts

Hi. I'm Penny. I love penguins, books, yarn, stationary, technology, and muddy trail running. Not necessarily in that order and not always every day.

On my main site I post weekly about one of my interests and Fridays feature photos of my cats Shadow (adopted 2009) and Buddy (adopted 2013) or of any kittens we're fostering.

Shorter and more varied postings occur here through the magic of scheduled posts.

That’s what I call a weather map!

Remember that animated wind map of the United States from a while back? Well, now there’s one of the whole earth! You’ve got to check out the interactive site (which is updated with near current weather) because these images don’t do it justice. YOU CAN ORBIT THE EARTH! YOU CAN ZOOM! YOU CAN SEE WIND SUPERIMPOSED ON TEMPERATURE, PRESSURE AND CLOUDS. Standing ovation to developer Cameron Beccario! (and thanks to my friend Alice Anderson for giving me the heads up)
