Happy Christmas Eve!

Mornin'!  It's 51° in Wildwood.  Happy Christmas Eve!  It's been a nice vacation week so far other than this heavy rain pounding my staircase skylight.  There's a "coastal flood" advisory posted for today.  I wouldn't doubt it as those extreme high tides have been here as of late especially yesterday. The marsh grasses just about disappeared which never ceases to freak me out.  Gives me that true "living on an island" feel.  May have to fire up the sump pump today!  Today's weather is rain, rain and more rain.  Not to mention winds, winds, and more winds (S-SW at 24-35mph w/gusting).  Temps will be in the upper 50s and maybe even tapping 60°.  It'll be raining right into Christmas morning when these unwelcomed clouds finally check out.  Guess I shouldn't look at a gift horse in the mouth as it could be the white stuff.  Regardless...take heed if traveling today.  Tonight...steady rains with temps in the upper 40s as the winds simmer down some but not enough to keep that holiday hair-do in place.  Tis the season!
High tide:9:15a.m.
Low tide:3:31p.m.
Ocean temp:48°
