TGIF

1-21-21

Mornin'! Today's the 21st day of the 21st year of the 21st century!  It's 35° in Wildwood NJ.  The breezes are currently out of the S-SW at 9-16mph creating the early morning windchill making it feel like 27°.  The island's covered in clouds except right along the horizon where Ms Sun's peeking through that slight opening creating colors and light that every photographer dreams of.  Expect these morning clouds giving way to generally sunny skies today.  Temps will be in the upper 40s with SW winds at 10-20mph.  Tonight... clear, low of 37° and West winds at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... more of the same.  The weekend... mostly sunny with Saturday being the blustery day.

Blustery Inauguration Day

Mornin'!  It's 41° in Wildwood NJ.  We're under rain clouds at the moment as it's spitting very lightly.  Breezes are out of the W-SW at 8-11mph.  There's a 60% chance of rain showers this morning.  The clouds will eventually clear out as the rain will give way to partly sunny skies by later this morning / early  afternoon.  Today's temps will be just about where they are now... low 40s.  It's the winds that intend to make their presence known out of the W-NW at 20-30mph and make for a blustery, cold day. The wind chills will be in the upper 20s / low 30s.  Tonight... mostly clear, 29°, W-NW winds at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... sunny, high of 47° and SW winds at 10-20mph.  At this time, the weekend's looking dry but wintry.  The temps will be dropping while the winds will be whipping.  Say that fast 5 times.  It's getting a tiny bit easier without Freddy.  In fact, yesterday I only filled up once and never actually cried.  Not sure what today brings as I'll mostly be in celebratory mode witnessing our new President get sworn in!

Sunny and Blustery Tuesday



Mornin'!  It's 37° in Wildwood NJ.  Breezes are out of the West at 12-16mph giving us a windchill of 27°.  It's clear as Ms Sun's on her way in a few minutes.  Expect another blue sky - sunny day with a high of 46° and stiff West winds at 15-25mph (windchill 36°).  Tonight... some clouds filter in as temps drop to around where they are now... 35° and W-SW winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... colder (high of 39° with a windchill of 30°) and cloudier with less winds.   We're still adapting to a quiet home without our Freddy but those ugly cries have started to become less.  Little stupid routine things though seem to be the hardest to adapt to.  I never thought I'd admit to missing his chihuahua yapping.  But, I miss it so much.

Martin Luther King Monday

Mornin'!  Happy Martin Luther King day!  His birthday was actually on January 15th but is always celebrated on a Monday.  It's 38° in Wildwood NJ.  It's clear and starlit as dawn approaches.  Ms Sun should be crossing the horizon in less than an hour.  Breezes are light out of the W-SW at 6-9mph.  Expect a sunny day with a few clouds sprinkled in here and there.  It'll be in the mid-upper 40s with West winds blustery at 15-20mph +gusting at times of up to 30mph.  Tonight... clear with temps back into the low-30s and West winds staying checked in at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... a repeat of today.

Partly Sunny and Blustery



Mornin'!  It's 38° in Wildwood NJ.  It's clear and starlit in the early morning darkness with breezes out of the W-SW at 15-20mph.  The windchill is 26°.  Ms Sun's due to shine today as she'll warm things up a bit.  Expect a sunny to partly sunny day with a high of 46° and W-SW winds staying checked in at 15-25mph.  Higher wind gusts are possible.  Tonight... partly clear, partly cloudy with temps in the low-mid 30s and those W-SW winds at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... mostly sunny, high of 43° and West winds at 10-20mph.  It looks like we're going to have some blustery winds at least until Wednesday.  Keep those scarves and gloves close at hand.  Adjusting to the quietness in our home without Freddy is still happening.  We're taking it hour by hour and day by day as we move along with the loss of his amazing, remarkable presence.  His absence seems to be in everything we see or do.  Simple things like opening the back porch door (which always got him running), glancing at the front storm door area with him no longer sitting there.  He was forever looking out keeping an eye on anyone passing by or just simply walking by.  Also, the spot in the kitchen with his now empty food/water dish area seems to leave  a tightening in the heart. Hubby and I did a thorough gathering of Freddy's items (crate, blanket, toys, food, treats, shampoo, leash etc.) and took them to the animal shelter which warmed our hearts knowing they would be put to good use.  The tears continue to flow though.   Today's photos are Freddy with our three children (and our grandson).

Kind Of A Gray Day

Mornin'!  It's 45° in Wildwood NJ.  It's partly cloudy with light breezes out of the SW at 4-6mph.  I caught a glimpse of a star or two twinkling in the dark morning sky through some clouds.  I like to think that it was our sweet Freddy winking down on us.  The mornings sure seem to be the hardest without him.  I'm going to put a photo of Fred on my blog for who knows how much longer.  But, my tribute to this great little guy is going to continue for awhile.  Now's the time as I have thousands of photos of him! I keep trying to wrap my head around the fact it was just 8 years ago this very weekend that we got him.  I assumed I'd have him for another 8.
Today's weather will be a mild winters' day with partly cloudy skies in the morning along with peeks of sun.  By this afternoon, it'll be mostly cloudy with temps in the upper 40s and West winds at 10-20mph. Tonight... mostly cloudy then clearing overnight with temps down in the mid-30s and West winds at 15-25mph.  Tomorrow... sunny, mid-40s and a bit blustery.  And, Monday (Dr. Martin Luther King day) will be partly sunny with temps in the low-mid 40s.
