Weekend Washout

One of the Umbrella Men
Mornin'!  No early morning blog as it was a great day to sleep in a bit.  It's 51° and raining hard in Wildwood.  The snow's outta here.  I mean all gone.  So, now that the meltdown is over and we're saturated, and rain's in the forecast this entire weekend (I wish I could slide the roof open positioned just over all the house plants for a good watering).  It will continue to rain down (100% chance) all day and night and tomorrow.  I'm thinking "flooding".  So far so good though.  The streets have just normal puddles and rained filled curbs.  Tomorrow's the "New Moon" which is  when the moon is between the earth and the sun appearing dark and when the sun and moon are on opposite sides of the earth, the moon appears "full" to us, a bright, round disk.  Both create major tidal flooding.  Enough about moon and flooding.  Lets talk "winds".  It's be windy today (beginning from the E-SE at 15-20mph) and by early evening, it'll be "Dorothy Gale Windy" out of the S-SE at 25-40mph sustained with gusting.  Hang on tree roots!  Temps will hover around the mid-50s.  Tomorrow...much of the same...100% chance of rain.  And, Monday...40% chance of rain.  Indoor project time I guess.  My project this weekend will be sorting through the summer clothes for my Key West vacation in 27 days!  83 days until Summer (but I can feel a beach day way before that)!
High tide: Now and 7:57p.m.
Low tide: 1:29p.m.
Ocean temp: 40°
1:00p.m. FOOTNOTE: was just out and about and Pacific Ave (around the 4400 block) is flooded.
