Thanks to Bernews and NASA astronaut Doug Wheelock, this is a satellite image of Hurricane Igor, the giant storm that's making its way towards Bermuda and will likely wallop the island with a direct hit sometime Sunday night or Monday morning. I'm not sure what's in store for the island—a weatherman, I am not—but for an up-to-date account of what's happening on the ground, be sure to check in here for all of your Hurricane Igor news and information. For now, the air is humid and the waves are high and we're all hunkering down for a very wet weekend.
