    This image of hurricane Isaac illuminated by moonlight as cities glow in the middle of the night is unique and strangely beautiful. It was captured on August 28, 2012, just at midnight, as it was hitting the Gulf's coast. #hurricaneIsaac

    A NASA satellite captured a spectacular photo of what is now Hurricane Isaac from space, a nighttime view showing the then-tropical storm's clouds lit up by moonlight as it approached the U.S. Gulf Coast. NASA's Suomi-NPP weather tracking satellite recorded of Isaac just after midnight on Tuesday (Aug. 28). The bright city lights of New Orleans, Houston and Tampa, Fla., can be easily identified...also...cities all along the Gulf Coast, Florida and the southeast U.S. coast.

I once drove into a storm like this, the tempreture dropped 30 degrees in a matter of minutes and the wind changed directions! Not something I want to do again!

I lit a fire with the love you left behind And it burned wild and crept up the mountain side I followed your ashes into outer space I can't look out the window, I can't look at this place. I can't look at the stars They make me wonder where you are Stars, up on heaven's boulevard And if I know you at all, I know you've gone too far
