Boxing Day (aka St. Stephen's Day)

Mornin'!  It's 31° in Wildwood NJ.  I researched what "Boxing Day" means and it has many meanings.  Too many to mention on this blog.  The one I like most though is that today refers to a nautical tradition when great sailing ships set sail on this day with a sealed box on board containing money for good luck.  If the voyage was a success, the box was given to a priest who opened it at Christmas giving the contents to the poor.  Today's weather will almost be a repeat of yesterday.  Ms Sun's about to cross the horizon and give us more of a sunny day than yesterday with temps in the low 40s.  There are no breezes to note but will eventually come from the NW at 9-11mph.  Tonight... temps in the upper 30s with clear skies and breezes out of the West at 7-9mph.  Tomorrow...another repeat happening as it'll be pretty much the same as today.  Happy Boxing Day!
