Twelfth Night and The Freeze is Still On!

Mornin'!  It's 10° in Siberia...oops I mean Wildwood NJ.  Today is the twelfth night after Christmas and is the start of Mardi Gras / Carnival season.  The wind chill is 0° as the West-NW winds are still ramped up at 18-25mph w/gusting.  Oh...the winds aren't checking out until tomorrow afternoon.  There's a wind-chill advisory posted until then.  We're covered in a huge blanket of drifting, hard, icy snow.  Lots of digging out going on all over the island but difficult due to the deep drifts, very cold temps, and those annoying, intolerable, blustery winds.  It'll be another frigid sunny day with temps tapping the mid-teens but with the 20-25mph w/35mph gusts out of the West making it feel as low as -7°.  Tonight...clear with temps back down into the single digits (maybe 10°) with winds out of the NW 20-25mph w/gusting.  Tomorrow...sunshine with temps in the low-mid 20s!!!
High tide: 11:16a.m.
Low tide:5:22p.m.
Ocean temp:42°
