    Tropical Storm Debby formed from the low pressure area called System 96L, that NASA satellites were studying last week. NASA's Aqua satellite flew over the storm right after it strengthened into a tropical storm on June 23.

    Debby was born Saturday, June 23 around 4 a.m. EDT as her maximum sustained winds whipped up to 50 mph very quickly. She was born about 220 miles (355 km) south-southeast of the mouth of the Mississippi River, near 26.2 North and 87.6 West. Debby was moving to the north at 6 mph (9 kmh).

      I'd go on and on about how beautiful the photo is, but that stupid storm's been raining on my nonstop for something like 3 days now (ruining my spirits). We've gotten over 8 inches of rain since yesterday alone!
