Getting the Winter Blast!

Mornin'! I'm having serious flashbacks this morning as the howling winds, the cold house (especially the floors), the hot water heater pilot blown out, freezing cold temps...21° - chill factor of 8° are all bringing me right there to last February. It's left a major imprint. Wildwood is noisy, dark and ominous this morning. No display of color on the horizon as huge, thick clouds are moving rather quickly across the dark sky right in the direction of the sea. Winds are roaring out of the W-NW at 20-30mph. It's bitter cold and will stay that way much of today as the temperatures may not see the 30's. Plus, there's not going to be much sun to speak of...just clouds with snow showers and/or flurries. A raw winter blast is in store for us on the island. 7 days until Winter! High tide:1:38p.m.; Low tide:7:44a.m.; Ocean temp:40°. FOOTNOTE: It's 10a.m. and it's really snowing out there...big snow squall and it's laying!

Thick, dark clouds portend imminent danger. Something- the weather, is looming, looming. The gods are angry. Tonight, our moon will answer us.
WTF: I'm going back to bed!
