The last two months have been crazy. We experienced a dramatic lunar eclipse seen across the United States. It was the first time in recorded history that we had three hurricanes in the Atlantic basin at the same time and all three made landfall. (Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria devastated the Caribbean, southern Texas and south Florida.)
