      Note the perfect roundness of the eye. This is from the idea that
      the dielectric constant of water in a capacitive condition is about
      80 times that of air, so when you get big voltages, microphysics of
      clouds are really impacted, especially near the eye were clouds are
      really elegated in the DC fields. The ocean roiled by winds below in
      that circle cause gas exchange conductivities in that pattern and
      reinforce the pattern.

      This typhoon has BPs under 888 mbs. That is an interesting measure
      as it is under the lowest recorded ever in the Atlantic w/ Hurricane
      Gilbert in 1988. That hurricane was after the American dams had
      somewhat settled their ecological damage following the Dust Bowl and
      before substantially the West African, South and Central American
      dams, other than the PCZ, had been constructed. I was in law school
      at the time and I recall taking a break from studies to read about
      the eye of Gilbert passing the Yukaton Pen. and a reporter in the eye
      riding it out in a Hotel described the sun coming out, birds singing,
      and soda bottles in despensing machines exploiding from the low
      pressure . . . before all hell came loose.

      One last thing before I go to bed. Southern California, which is a 7
      hour drive from here, had a cool spell the past day or so. So did
      we. North of here--rain up to Washington. Is is connected to
      Chaba? Let me explain something. You can put you hand a mere foot
      over a gas burner and not burn your hand. Heat travels slowly. And
      there is NO WAY a cool wave in Southern California should be
      associated merely from a thermal standpoint with the cool wave here
      in Redding. But it is associated. It's associated with the
      incredibly huge voltages associated with this storm, and through the
      conductive oceans its impact on climate patterns exends to us in the
      US.

      WOW!! The IR pictures are incredible. That is one symmetrical, beautiful storm. Well, obviously the destruction it can cause isn t beautiful, but you know

        WOW!! The IR pictures are incredible. That is one symmetrical,
        beautiful storm. Well, obviously the destruction it can cause isn't
        beautiful, but you know what I mean. The winds are forecasted to be
        in the neighborhoood of 180 kt at landfall in southern Japan, on or
        about the 29th. 888 MB?! That's really, really amazing. I don't see
        much in the way of solar enhancement coming. Things should remain
        fairly quiet. See my report for more details.
