Zucchini Pasta with Tomato and Onions

This was just a simple "pasta" dish using zucchini squash in place of the pasta, and tomato, onion, spices and olive oil instead of sauce from a jar.  I've cooked this dish before, both for myself and with a friend.  It's been delicious every time.  I suppose I could have just sliced up the zucchini, but a couple of months back I got on Amazon and ordered one of those Veggetti slicers  that you may have seen on TV.  It works pretty much as advertised.  It took me just over a minute to turn a medium sized zucchini into a pile of "pasta" strands.

1 zucchini squash ... spiral sliced 1/4 red…

This is a neat weather map

I'm a weather guy, so of course I like anything that will give me a quick look at what conditions might be expected at my location.  If I see something interesting, I did into the data a bit more.  This map is fun to look at just for the winds, it can be almost mesmerizing to watch the flow.
