Happy Halloween

Mornin'!  Happy Halloween!  I'm back!  I'm trying to get grounded here as I focus on "Wildwood Weather" for the first time in about 10 days.  It's pretty dreary outside in Wildwood.  Temp is 65° with gray, overcast skies and winds out of the South at 25-30mph +gusting.  We must have had some major winds during my hiatus as the tree out front is bare from all its leaves and the tree out back has been shed of its thin branches as they're strewn all over the backyard.  Major clean up this weekend for sure.  So one of hubby's bucket list items has been checked off the list as he drove from Wildwood NJ to Key West Florida and back again (3000+ miles).  We pulled in last night.  It was very long but got to not only enjoy Key West but had the opportunity to stop in Georgia to visit our daughter and her hubby for a couple nice days.  One of the best parts of the drive itself was watching the weather change from cool, blustery weather to the lush warm tropics and back again to Fall with some spectacular leaf foliage colors along the way (all in the Northeast corridor to and from Georgia). Didn't note any leave color changes at all in Florida.  The average daily temp in Florida was 86° and humid by the way.  The drive was perfect and amazing.  No major traffic hiccups but we did have rain (miserably heavy at times) for the drive on the way home through the Carolinas.
For today's weather, expect a gray day with temps in the upper 60s and strong winds out of the South at 25-30mph +gusting.  We may see some misty periods today with the rain possibly coming tonight (50% chance) with scattered showers and it'll come later when the little trick-or-treaters are in bed.  Tomorrow... we'll probably wake to those overnight rain showers but Ms Sun will return by mid-day.  The weekend's looking sunny and cooler (50s).  Also, this weekend is "turn the clocks" back an hour ("Fall" behind) Saturday night before turning in for kick-starting "daylight savings time".   Oh... I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that today is "goodbye" to October!  Until next year, we bid adieu to you!  It's been a pretty terrific month!  Happy Halloween!
