Islamorada Journal 2013…17 FEB

The current crap weather pattern started on Friday when this rain front came through...

...as can clearly be seen on the radar [hint: the green stuff is rain].

By Saturday the winds were howling out of the northwest at up to 32 kts [36 mph] which pleased certain individuals no end.

And caused the rest of us to put on long trousers and hide out from the wind.

Wayne came over for a visit while his doggies were being groomed at a nearby pooch salon.

At the same time the Jesse James gang headed north to the Everglades National Park where they saw dozens of gators and all sorts of birds and fish.

Weather just seemed to get worse and worse here.

As of Sunday morning the temperature is 51° and the winds are 28 kts [32 mph] straight out of the north resulting in a wind chill of...well the weather service doesn't seem to provide wind chill data for temperatures above 40°...so we just have to say that it's cold out there.

Hopefully we'll get back to having fish destroy our lures one of these days.

Meanwhile, in other news...
