Traveling Tuesday!

Mornin'!  It's 51° in Wildwood NJ.  It's clear as Ms Sun just rose over the horizon.  Breezes are hardly there....E-NE 3-5mph.   Here's today's weather... It'll be a lovely Spring day with plenty of sunshine and temps tapping 60°.  Breezes will ramp up a little from the E-NE at 13-16mph.  Tonight...clear with temps back into the low 50s with NE breezes at 9-10mph.  It appears this exact weather will take us right through until next week with the exception of Thursday and Sunday evening when showers are forecasted.
Well, it's vacation time again as it's my last blog entry for about a week.  Hubby and I have been preparing for the drive back to Athens GA to spend a week with our oldest daughter and her hubby and celebrate her birthday and Mother's day.  Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there btw! We're headed for the Cape May-Lewes Ferry in a few hours to begin the long journey.  I'm looking forward to the trip to Georgia and a little get-a-way off of the island (always makes me appreciate it even more upon returning).   It's a long drive but worth every mile with nearly 800 miles/13 hrs including driving over the Chesapeake Bay bridge and through the tunnel. It'll be fun hanging with our daughter and her hubby in the lovely City of Athens with its quaint ambiance, eclectic eateries, charm, and beauty which is now in a summer climate (I packed all summer clothes). It's a very beautiful, charming, southern college town (University of Georgia).  Like Wildwood, it's a seasonal town. There's one major difference...our "in season" is at completely opposite spectrums.  In Athens, once graduation takes place (which just occurred last week), it returns to being a sleepy little town for 3 months as all the students check out for the summer. As that's unfolding, Wildwood does the opposite and goes from approximately 16,000 pp year-round residents to a packed little 5-mile resort (250,000 pp) for those 3 summer months of the year.  We're not quite "in season" here but it's coming once the schools close.  Plus, Wildwood's not quite there with summer weather yet, but Spring has sprung as we've been blessed with some perfect Spring weather days recently.
Today's weather will be no exception and be pleasant here on the coast with plentiful sunshine as well as for the week up ahead and the weekend.  This weekend looks nice for the Classic Cars on display here! You know the score if researching the Wildwood weather when the ol' blog's on hiatus.  Remember...you can always get a pretty good up-to-date and accurate weather forecast by clicking "wunderground" on the right side of my blog page under "personal favs" at the bottom.  Click on it and just type in Wildwood NJ or 08260 (our zip code) and you'll have the most accurate weather in my opinion.  I should be back to blogging next Wednesday... by then I'll be settled back in after traversing to and from Georgia.  See you on the other side!
