That's OK. This morning it snowed so hard the visibility was down to about 1/2 mile.

Rained like a a burst hydrant early hours this mnorning. My neighbor recorded a 67 mph wind gust, was blowing steady 35/40 most of the morning but has slacked off now. Supposed to get more tonight with wind picking up and a possible 3 ft. tidal surge at high tide around 8:00 tonight (I think).

Spent 18 years "up nawth" and the strongest rain I ever saw up there barely rates a strong sprinkle down here. You northern lads and lassies have no idea of what a true "Florida deluge" is. As in you can't see 50 ft. in front of you. Seriously........

Damn, That sounds like a hurricane!

What are the sea conditions like?

I have a buddy that pulled down to Miami Saturday for a week of boating in the Keys. Are they getting hit also?

Keys are getting hit tonight, but should be clearing out by tomorrow afternoon, then great weather. Seas will be rough for a day or two after.

AHA! So now we know what happened. Some yankee brought a cold front down here to torture us eh?? Well, it backfired on his azz

Gonna rain again all day today, then go down to the 50's and stay windy all week! Hah, then we get the last laugh, it clears up Saturday when he leaves...
