We're Weather Junkies, I Guess.

Tonight we are watching an episode of the Weather Channel series "When Weather Strikes Back" featuring 'Freak Waves', waves that can come seemingly from nowhere and reach up to 125 feet in height.

Some of the footage is very beautiful; right now they are showing waves off the coast of Ireland; the breaking waves beat upon the shore and upon each other.

We enjoy a lot of the Weather Channel programs; it's a comfortable way to see the awesome forces of nature from our dry and not-so-extreme-in-temperature living room.  It's also a good way to learn quite a bit about meteorology without even trying!
