Nothing chaseworthy materialized this past week and there is no potential for any chasing on the horizon. Although in past years I have chased up until Veterans’ Day – Nov. 11th – that may not occur this year. (Of course I didn’t expect to chase on February 24th either but that’s another story…) This could be it for the 2016 season.

Now here’s the visible satellite image:ganimjkwbrb4

Pretty obvious.
