Ten years of weather in three minutes
If you are interested in working weather magic, it helps if you have a sense of the natural weather patterns (because it is much easier to work inside the pattern than outside of it). It is also a nice to have this sense if you are Wiccan or occasionally attempt to divine the weather (because we all know that the weather on the news is wrong occasionally *wink*).
Hence my love for this video that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has made to celebrate the ten years of service (3788 days to be exact) of the GOES-12 satellite. The video is composed from 3641 full disk images of North and South America. It runs from the start of 2003 to August 2013 (GOES-12 was decommissioned on August 16th 2013).
For those who are curious, Katrina is at the :45 mark, and Sandy is at 2:50.
