50-50 Tuesday

Mornin'!  It's 38° in Wildwood NJ. Ms Sun's up and shining over the island.  It's still with no breezes to note.  Lots of birds seem to be enjoying the start to this day with all the chirping and quacking and squawking coming from every direction.  With the noisy stillness, I went into my own stillness as I stayed outside in the chill enjoying it all for much longer than I should have in my robe and slippers.  It was mesmerizing.  It was also inspiring me to finish up removing the remainder of tree branches broken and strewn throughout my yard from the weekend winds. I didn't seem to feel the cold while doing it.  The air was thick was salty brine.  The sky was vivid blue along with the sunrise glow with wispy, milky clouds thread here and there ...just magical.  Sometimes words are hard to put together to describe such a stunning moment.   This beauty's not lasting unfortunately.  Remnants of March have been hanging around off and on and today will be no exception.  Expect sunshine this morning while temps climb into the mid-40s by this afternoon.  Clouds will drift in by late morning.  And, rain will begin by late afternoon - early evening.  It's those damn winds out of the NE at 20-25 +gusting that will join in the weather today that makes it so much less enjoyable.  Tonight... rain with temps in the low-mid 40s with winds out of the N-NE at 20-25mph.  Tomorrow... Ms Sun returns with temps much higher and spring-like... mid-upper 50s (still blustery though).
High tide:7:02a.m. and 7:27p.m.
Low tide:12:56p.m.
Ocean temp:45°

@Maureen Thanks so much Mo as you are one of the ones (a fellow islander) who gets it and knows what I'm talking' about.
