I am glad you answered the question about the GRS.
Excellent looking sketch under tough conditions.

Nice observation--you sketched what you saw. That makes the sketch golden. I'm planning to go out shortly to take a look at the King and the GRS should be visible. Unfortunately, the CSC has changed its forecast--the seeing is now supposed to be poor so I don't know what I'll be able to detect. I'll report back here.

An excellent observation of Jupiter. You have captured fine detail across the Jovian disk.
You actually recorded the re-emergence of the Red Spot Hollow (RSH, also known as the White Spot Hollow (WSH)) which normally borders and nearly encloses the Great Red Spot (GRS) towards the north. I have attached an excellent image of Jupiter obtained by Glenn Jolly of Arizona that shows the GRS/RSH very nicely.
Thank you for sharing it with us all.
