Farewell February...Time to Say Goodbye!

Mornin'! Happy Leap Year! Won't see February 29th again until 2016! It's 42° this morning as lightness begins to develop over the island. It's clear and quiet except for the sound of the surf and the music I'm playing...Andreá Bocelli's Con Te Partiro in honor the February bowing out. It'll be mostly gray and a bit dreary though as the clouds will soon be moving in but peeks of brightness and possibly breaks of sun will be hanging around at least until midday when those clouds really thicken and the rain begins. By evening, the steadiest, heavier rains will begin and we may even see a thunderstorm. Temps will rise into the low-50's. Winds will begin this morning out of the S-SE at 10-15mph; then shift from the South a bit stronger at 20-25mph; then end up this evening from the S-SW at 10-15mph. Tides: High: 1:23p.m. Low: 7:04p.m.; Ocean temp:46°; Sunset:5:53p.m.; 20 days until the first day of Spring!

I most certainly didn't know this. Did you?:
"Leapin' lizards!" Annie attributes her lasting youthfulness to her Leap Day, February 29, birthday, and so only ages one year in appearance for every four years that pass.
