Today's the "Shortest Day of the Year"

'Sunrise" 12/20/12 from my front porch
Mornin'!  It's 54° in WW.  It's the Winter Solstice today being the shortest day of the year.  After today it all turns around and each day grows longer.  Before you know it...sunset will be at 8:30p.m. with warm evenings sitting on the beach.  At least we can hope as some believe today is doomsday as predicted on the Mayan Calendar.  If that's's been fun and a great ride and there's nothing greater than seeing readers check out my blog from all over the world!'s a flood and wind advisory out this morning until noon.  It's raining to beat the band at the moment and it's wind driven with winds coming in from the W-WSW at 30-35mph w/gusting up to 45mph.  Winds will continue throughout the day although most of the rain clouds should be driven off the island by noon.  The Sun will be making it's presence known this morning off and on but there still is a 40% chance of a shower all throughout the day.  Temps are dropping into the mid-40's.  Chilly, bad hair day for doomsday. 
High tide:2:30p.m.
Low tide:8:25a.m.
Ocean temp:53°
