Stuff we linked to on Twitter last week

A post by Anne JeffersonChris, who holds the keys to the magic scripts that make our Twitter link fest something less than an all-day HTML formatting slog, is traveling at the moment. So forgive the leaner linky goodness this week, and savor the best 9 things I linked to on Twitter in the last 7 days.

Blogs in Motion

Water

Humoring me with some pictures of flooding in my native neck of the woods, planelight has posted pictures of flooding of the Minnesota River around St. Peter: http://lifeinplanelight.wordpress.com/2010/09/25/flooding-of-the-minnesota-river-around-st-peter/ [My inspection of the USGS gage records at ~10 pm Saturday evening suggests that smaller streams have crested, but big rivers  like the Minnesota and Mississippi are still rising.]

Through the Sandglass has fantastically awesome post about Indus River, flooding & climate science http://throughthesandglass.typepad.com/through_the_sandglass/2010/09/a-climate-science-recommendation-the-pakistan-floods-and-of-course-sand.html (via @clasticdetritus)[This is the sort of post I meant to write about the Pakistan floods but never managed to pull together. Now Michael Welland has done a much better job of it.]
