Birthday Sunday

Mornin'!  Happy 6th Birthday to my grandson! It's 73° in sunny Wildwood NJ.  Humidity's 90% with a dewpoint of 70°.  It's also fragrant with that ol' marsh (fishy) aroma in the humid morning air.  It'll be a repeat of yesterday.  By the way, no rain or thunderstorms yesterday or last night even with a 20% chance.  This morning after blogging, I'm hitting the gardens for their daily dose of water.  It seems I've been watering much more than Mother Nature this summer.  Today could be following suit as the forecasts I've checked all said the same thing as yesterday... sunny with a 15-20% chance of a passing "pop-up" shower and/or thunderstorm.  It'll be warm with temps in the mid-upper 80s with S-SW breezes at 7-10mph.  Tonight... mostly clear with temps in the mid-70s and S-SW breezes at 4-6mph.  Tomorrow looks pretty much like a repeat of today with a little more cloud cover along with that 20% chance of rain showers again.  Your guess is as good as mine when it's this "iffy" and unsettled as these storm clouds just pop up out of nowhere.  Keep your eye on the sky (or doppler) is all I can say.  And, today's blog is for my incredibly special grandson. What a blessing he is.  Many hugs and kisses to you today!
