Nice December Weekend

Mornin'!  It's 39 crisp degrees in Wildwood.  Ms Sun's up and shining brightly as she rose almost an hour ago.  Took a bit of an extra hour of sleep in a cozy, seashore cottage this morning.  Count my blessings everyday for that...the extra hour "and" of course the seashore cottage!  There's frost on everything this cold morn but the sun's taking care of that as I type.  No breezes to note and there will be none today or tonight (variable out of the N-NE around 4-6mph).  That's a very good thing for the Elks holiday beach bonfire in North Wildwood tonight.  The Firefighters manning that bad boy (thanks for that by the way) all evening will appreciate the lack of winds tonight.  Also, the Tides are working on the side of the Bonfire the beach party will be at low tide!
Speaking of tonight...The Geminid Meteors (the shooting stars) have aligned for this weekend's peak of the annual Geminid meteor shower: It's arguably the best meteor display of the year — and it reaches its height during the heart of the weekend, late Saturday night and early Sunday morning.
This year, the moon is at last quarter during the Geminids' peak. That means the meteors will have a little bit of competition with that little bit of moonshine during the wee hours. But things could be worse. And the long-streaking fireballs that are characteristic of the Geminids should make an impression despite the moon (which thankfully isn't a Full Moon).
Today's weather will be perfectly sunny with no breezes to note and temps in the upper 40s possibly tapping 50°.  Tonight...clear and starlit with no breezes and temps down into the low 40s (possibly upper 30s).  Tomorrow...same as today!
High Tide:3:19p.m.
Low Tide:9:09a.m.
Ocean Temp:53°
