Cinco De Mayo - Full Flower Moon

Mornin'!  It's 46° in Wildwood NJ.  Happy Cinco De Mayo!  That's Spanish for the "Fifth of May" and is a yearly celebration which commemorates the anniversary of Mexico's victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862.  It's a Full Moon today... the Full "Flower" Moon. 
We're kicking off this Friday with plentiful sunshine and light breezes out of the W-NW at 2-4mph.  We're going to have partly sunny skies today with clouds filtering in and out and a 25% chance of a rain shower.  Temps will just about tap 60° with NE winds at 5-10mph.  Tonight... mostly clear with some passing clouds, temps down to where they are now (upper 40s) and East winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... a sunny Saturday with a high of 64° and West winds at 10-15mph.  Sunday... partly sunny with clouds in the mix and a 25% chance of a rain shower; temps in the mid-60s and S-SW winds at 5-10mph.  Monday... partly sunny; temps in the mid-60s and light breezes.  Tuesday... rainy day with a high of 60° and slightly breezy.  Wednesday... partly sunny; high of 60° and NE breezes at 10-15mph.  Thursday... sunny; high of 60° with light breezes.

There's plenty going on in Wildwood and surrounding areas this weekend... There's the "Red Bull Beach Scramble" a new event with those off-road vehicles careening on the beach, The Wildwood Crest Borough Yard Sale is tomorrow; The Tournament of Bands competition is this weekend, Morey's opens its Mariners amusement Pier beginning tonight and The Jazz Fest is in Cape May. 
It's "Take A Hiatus From The Blog" time as I'm making time for paying visits as well as having visitors in my future plans beginning tonight at least until May 19th or 20th.  Whatever you need... events, weather, tides, webcams etc. are on my blog page.  If you want the daily weather, the best and most accurate in my opinion is the link "Weather Wunderground".  Just click and put in "Wildwood" or "08260" and you'll have Wildwood's daily weather at your fingertips!  In the words of Arnold... "I'll be back" but my husband suggested "hasta la vista baby"!

Have a wonderful vacation/staycation/whatever, just be sure
to be safe. Not back until the 19th or so, I am sure I will
have withdrawal symptoms, an empty spot in my mornings.

5/14 - just checking because maybe your obligations ended early and you are back on line.
You deserve a break but YES, you are missed.
Oh, Happy Mother's Day.
