    I'm too brain dead to make the image link work properly. Anyone else who can make it go is welcome to try.

    Have a look here. And click on some of those links. Mauri Pelto is always good value.

    It's not as big as 2010, so there probably won't be so much fun tracking the remnants as they move, stick, break up, move again. But it's still pretty impressive.
