Good Friday

Mornin'!  It's 45° in Wildwood NJ.  It's Good Friday and usually gray and ominous. That's how I seem to remember it.  But, Ms Sun's shining brightly this morning.  Winds are still playing havoc over the island out of the W-NW at 30-35mph +gusting.  Lot's of tree pruning as of late!  What's gut wrenching with all this wind is the recycles that are taking over the streets thanks to the thoughtless folk who put their filled recycle cans in front of 40mph gusts of wind curbside without lids.  This enormous amount of plastic (which my hubby and I are trying to contain by running down the street several times already today retrieving it all ) is heading into the harbor and ocean.  And, by the way, 2 of these recycle cans are from visitors (not locals)... just saying.  The sea life thank you... you inconsiderate, careless idiots.  Sorry.  I had to vent.  It's extremely disturbing to me.  I'm so bowled-over by the condition of the earth as it begins to heal as the world islolates.  The air and oceans have begun to heal from our abuse as mountain tops can be seen (cleaning atmosphere) and the oceans are clearer  and fish can be seen in the waters more now than ever before.  The birds have a good foothold as this wind blows and their chirping is louder than the howling winds and stronger than ever this morning.  It's mating season for all the birds ya know and they're doing what it takes to draw in a mate by showing off in beautiful song or even defending their territory with shorter chirps not quite as tuneful.  It's especially loudest in the morning.  And, it's all lovely and tuneful to me. Thank God for those birds and their Springtime vocals. The "early" bird not only catches the worm, but also a mate along with my smile.
For today's weather... expect a mix of clouds and sun with gusty winds.  Temps will just tap 50° with W-NW winds at 25-35mph +gusting (possibly over 50mph) and feeling like the low 40s with the windchill.  Tonight... partly clear/partly cloudy with gusting winds out of the W-NW at 25-35mph +gusting.  Temps will drop into the low-40s.  Tomorrow... mostly sunny, mid-50s and W-NW winds at 15-25mph +gusting.  Sunday... partly cloudy/partly sunny, temps in the mid-50s and S-SE winds finally calming down at 10-15mph.
