Fasnacht Day! Shrove Tuesday! Fat Tuesday!

Mornin'!  It's 13° in balmy Wildwood.  Jeez...it's soooo cold as winter continues on and on.  The island's blanketed in white again.  We received about 3-4" in all that hype of Titan coming to deliver 12" to the coast.  This time the snow is over a ½" of hardened ice which we got 1st. Today though...the sky looks mostly clear this early morn and it depends on which way you glance as the ocean side (east) is beginning to brighten and looks clear while the North sky appears to have some cloud cover.  It seems to be clear directly above but clouds will filter in and make this donut day a mostly cloudy one as most forecasts I've checked report "cloudy" for today.  Temps will get into the high 20s/low 30s as winds will be quiet from the North at 5-8mph.  By later this afternoon, they'll shift from the NE at 3-5mph as this quiet is not typical for March.  Not sure how much warmth from the sun we'll see today or how much meltdown we'll get...remains to be seen. Kitchens are warm though as donuts are being made all over the world!  Just over 2 weeks until Spring! Four days till we turn the clocks ahead and gain an extra hour of daylight!
High tide:10:08a.m.; Low tide:3:58p.m.; Ocean temp: 37°; Sunset: 5:55p.m.
