Hubby's Army Selfie - 1969
Mornin'!  It's 51° in Wildwood NJ.  It's Veterans Day as we reflect and salute all those who have served in our Military providing us our freedom.  It's observed on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.  Thank you for your service!  It seems that "thank you" just doesn't cut it for all the sacrifices our military has made for us.
The weather will cooperate here in the Northeast along our coast providing a pleasant autumn day for our Vets and all of us to enjoy.  We're even going to have a rare event with the planet Mercury crossing in front of Ms Sun's face known as a "transit".  It'll only be visible as a tiny black dot with a specialized solar equipped telescope. Experts say that those old "solar eclipse glasses" won't provide the magnification needed to see the tiny speck.
It's currently still dark outside this early morn with a starlit and (almost a full moon) moonlit sky.  Breezes are out of the SW at 8-11mph.  It'll be a partly sunny/partly cloudy day with temps tapping 60° and S-SW breezes at 9-12mph.  Tonight... increasing cloud cover as temps drop in the upper 40s/low 50s with S-SW breezes at 12-17mph.  Tomorrow... gray with rain and falling temperatures in the forecast.  We could see the 30s by dinner time.  It'll also be windy and raw along with that 80% chance of precipitation.  My guess is we won't have the pleasure of seeing a moonrise tomorrow so if you're interested, today may be the best chance.  Ms Sun returns on Wednesday along with much stronger winds and even colder temps.  I'm already working on the next batch of soup for that blustery, cold snap in the forecast.  It's looking like "Italian Wedding or Escarole" soup is up next on the homemade soup of the day menu!
