Earning Gnar Points

After going though a night of howling wind, no power, and the occasional errant chunk of debris hitting the Hurricane panels, it looks like Central Florida won’t be wiped off the map. We’ll still be here, providing entertainment value for the World.

Looks about right

We’re still without power this AM, and the water pressure needs to be restored (we’re under a boil water notice), so this post will be short and sweet. 

Stay safe, Fellow Floridians!

Still a blowin’

Restocking my Cheez-It and Diet Coke Supply

So I was up at the Publix this AM with the rest of the Barrier Island getting Hurricane supplies like Diet Coke, Cheez-its, and some fruit and veggies (hubby’s got to eat too). After all the coverage from Harvey, you’d think this is the freakin’ end. I mean, this is FLORIDA. We deal with rogue pythons and flesh eating lake bacteria. We have Florida Man. We’ll be alright.

With all this news coverage, I’m really getting in the mood to watch The Day After Tommorrow. Corny movie, but still a guilty

Holy Schnikes


pleasure for someone into Oceanography like me. With the storm Jose forming behind this one, it reminds me of that radar scene where all the hurricanes converge together. Horrible, horrible, horrible.
But SO GNAR
As a surfer, I think it’s funny to hear people ask if the waves are going to be good ahead of this hurricane. Ummm….not this one. Surfers like their ‘canes out in the ocean a bit, away from land, pumping in those nice swells to create beautiful, rideable, glassy waves with light, gentle offshore wind. I’m afraid this storm will only provide training footage for the Coast Guard. Boo.

Sandy was a good swell here in Cocoa Beach

 
We shall see if Irma will move off into the North Atlantic, leaving a nice swell behind, or if it just leaves us with a bunch of cleanup.

I foresee some beach trash crafts a-comin’, since hurricanes always bring in the wackiest and most interesting items to our shores, good and bad.

Oh, I snapped this pic by City Hall on the way back from the grocery. I wonder how many people will show up this weekend? I’ll bring the hibachi and rum out to da beach.

Weeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!
