Presidential Election Day

Last shots of the North Wildwood Gazebo


"The Wall" in North Wildwood
Mornin'!  It's a crisp, wintry 34° this morning.  There's literally frost on the pumpkin for the first time this season.  I keep thinking there's more Indian Summer left on the island but I'm beginning to be less hopeful.  Temps will rise up into the high 40's as breezes will be light out of the NE at 10-15mph.  The seas are basically flat today (1' waves).  It'll be another mix of clouds and sun kind of day.  Some forecasts say more sun than clouds and the others...more clouds than sun.  Gonna just have to wait and see.  One way or another, it'll be chilly and a bit raw in my opinion.  I just keep thinking I could use a nice Indian Summer day.  Brick Township in North Jersey has to evacuate today by 6p.m. due to a Nor'easter heading in our direction once again cracking a whip at our injured coastline tomorrow.  Man-O-Man.  So, by about 9:00p.m. tonight the winds will have kicked up to 25mph sustained.  That'll continue throughout the day tomorrow as we may get gusts of 40-50mph with over 2" of rain as this Nor'easter checks in.  Tomorrow, the sea will have at least 6' waves.  This can change as the path could be slightly more off the coast and more over the ocean creating less of a stormy impact as our very vulnerable coastlines could be spared.  I can remember Indian Summer days on Thanksgiving when you hated to turn the oven on as it was so warm and nice outside.  Wildwood's polling place...The Convention Center on the boardwalk is open today from 6a.m.-8p.m. for voting.  
High tide:12:33p.m.
Low tide:6:59p.m.
Ocean temp:57°
