The tropical cyclone known as Nadine reached hurricane status for a second time as of 11 a.m. Friday as it continues to circle the Atlantic Ocean. The storm could become one of the longest-lived in history, already about 16 days old and forecast to survive into next week. Nadine was about 730 miles southwest of the Azores with 75 mph winds. It could pass close by the Atlantic islands off the African coast for a second time, last brushing past about 10 days ago. The latest forecast cone has the storm moving northward, to the west of the Azores, before weakening back to tropical storm status Monday and moving more slowly through at least Wednesday.

It was about two weeks ago that a young Tropical Storm Nadine spun around near the Caribbean and East Coast, though the storm ended up circling back east toward the Azores. Here it goes again. The storm reformed as a tropical cyclone Sunday morning, having moved through the Azores and degenerating into a post-tropical cyclone. A post-tropical storm is a former tropical cyclone that still has heavy rains and high winds but no longer has tropical cyclone characteristics, according to the National Hurricane Center.

As the cashier finished checking out her groceries, she asks for a carton of Marlboro Lights. I winced. Appears to me she can't make up her mind whether to live longer or die earlier."Overheard (by a friend of TJI) on Light Rail: "I caught my daughter smoking the other day. Made her put it out. But she really did look cute! I told her that if she wants to smoke, she'll have to wait until her birthday next year.

LAJES, Azores Islands -- Setting the stage for war, President Bush issued a bold ultimatum to the United Nations yesterday, saying that it must act today to authorize military action against Iraq or Bush would shut the door on diplomacy. "Tomorrow is a moment of truth for the world," the president said after a brief summit yesterday in the Azores with the leaders of Britain and Spain. The message of Bush's deadline for U.N. action is that he is on the cusp, perhaps within days or even hours, of making a final decision to take the nation to war without U.N. backing.

WASHINGTON - On the verge of abandoning diplomacy and making final plans for war, President Bush scheduled a trip to an Atlantic Ocean island tomorrow to meet with the leaders of Britain and Spain, part of a U.S.-led coalition that would invade Iraq in the absence of United Nations support. Administration officials described the hastily arranged one-day summit as a strategy session on how to move from U.N. diplomacy toward military action. Bush will confer with Prime Ministers Tony Blair of Britain and Jose Maria Aznar of Spain at a military base in the Azores.

Americans who visited Europe this summer encountered the sticker shock of $500 hotel rooms and $10 cans of Pepsi. But while the dollar continues to be weak against the euro, Americans can lessen the blow by heading to Europe in the fall, when they can find lower prices and fewer tourists. Some of the biggest savings can be found in the air. The average airfare from the United States to Europe dropped roughly 20 percent, to $928, this fall from $1,171 in the summer, according to an Expedia spokeswoman.

Tropical Storm Michael, the 13th named storm of the hurricane season, has formed in the Atlantic as of 11 a.m. Tuesday. The storm poses no threat to land at the moment. Tropical Storm Leslie, meanwhile, is struggling to Michael's west but could still become a hurricane that could affect Bermuda. Michael had 40 mph winds as of Tuesday morning, and was 1,200 miles southwest of the Azores, in the middle of the ocean. The storm is expected to move slowly northward but isn't much of a concern.
