Winter Solstice

Sunset at Sunset Lake - Wildwood Crest, NJ
Mornin'!  It's 33° in Wildwood.  Happy Winter!  It's here...the Winter Solstice (the day of the year that we have the least amount of daylight) has arrived as it's officially the Winter season.  It's a good thing as the next season is Spring which will be here in 89 days.  And even better... beginning today the days begin to grow longer and longer.  Before you know it, it'll be daylight savings time.  Today's a replica of yesterday.  Cold and frosty out there as the cloud covered gray skies are making it feel cold and wintry.  Everything's white...lawns, vehicles, ornaments, hot tub know the drill.  It'll be a nice winter's day as temps will just about tap 40° while Ms Sun eventually begins to shine.  Breezes (nothing at the moment) will be out of the N-NW at 10-12mph.  Tonight...clear with temps in the low 30s and breezes out of the North at 6-7mph.  Rain's coming tomorrow, Tuesday night, Wednesday and Thursday.   Oh...I almost forgot about the New Moon which is today which pulls the tides higher than usual. 
High tide: 6:55a.m. and 7:20p.m.
Low tide:1:10p.m.
Ocean temp:48°
