Full Moon - High Tide Weekend

Mornin'!  It's 55° in Wildwood NJ.   It's sunny and bright.  We've had a nice cleansing with last night's very hide tide and all is well with the world again.  Hubby did clear debris from around the car in the driveway (big 4' plank of wood wedged near the back tire) this morning.  The Tides were extremely high on last night's high tide and came creeping over the bulkhead, sidewalks and right into my drive and yard.  A Coastal Flood Advisory remains in effect until mid-day today.  I don't expect it to be as bad as the last two days high tide though.  Take precautions just in case.  Anyone who drove through those waters last night (and there were loads of folks doing just that) now have some serious salty undercarriage issues on their vehicles now until they have it cleaned. Some plowed through the waters so aggressively that the wake they generated came rushing into all the driveways and yards around the neighborhood here.  Enough of those annoying, relentless tides!
Today's weather will be lovely.  A beautiful autumn day is in store with plentiful sunshine, temps in the upper 60s / low 70s and breezes out of the W-NW at 8-10mph.  Tonight... clear, NW breezes at 10-15mph and temps in the mid-60s.  Tomorrow looks cloudy with the possibility of rain in the afternoon  (60% chance) into the overnight.  It's the Full Moon tomorrow as well.
Monday... sunny after the morning showers check out.
