Not a day for water-sports! SP Weather reports 39 MPH gusts.
Keeping boats properly secured today will be an interesting adventure.
The saragasso is being arranged in nice high piles on the beach - it should be easier to clean up after this event. I think the massive amounts of this stuff will be protecting us from erosion today.
PS - another fabulous photo Elbert!
