  1. I agree. Loving it. My tomato plants are producing like it's still August. I have put a jacket on a maybe a handful of times the whole fall while going out in the evening. Keep this for another month and then let winter hit.
  2. Yesterday was one of the most beautiful days of the 'summer' with the combo of the temperatures, light wind and the spectacle that is hurricane surf. I was at Tobay. I've seen tons of dolphin this year too, but none surfing- that is awesome. We were swimming about 30-40 yards away from a big pod in Long Beach a couple weeks ago. If you were on a surfboard out in the break, you would have been right next to them.
  3. What a great day. Beach is packed. Half because it's a great beach day and people are taking advantage and half because Jose cut the width of the beach in half and now swells from Maria are pushing everyone up to the dune line. Beautiful swells from Maria though. This will build all week.
  4. This is why September on the beach is great.
  5. Rough. My father-in-law still waiting to get word on his home also in Naples. Communications are slow and pretty everyone he knew evacuated (which is a good thing)
  6. Thank you for this. Do you have any similar information on what more recent codes are?
  7. I was in Disney the day after charley and It was humming along. There was a lot of tree damage around Orlando as you could imagine. But life went on in the magic kingdom.
  8. Even out here on LI it's been a nuisance. We just get the left over shower and not the downpour. The weekend timing has been a pain. I'm on the beach now though. Breezy but I'll take it.
  9. The timing of these fronts on Friday nights into Saturday mornings has been annoying for beach bums like myself. Tomorrow looks like more poor timing- passing through right at noon. The good thing though is that Saturday afternoons have cleared out and there are minimal crowds. Most people wake up and see it's cloudy and go off to do whatever else it could possibly be that people do on a summer Saturday. Not me, I wait it out and get the beach to myself
  10. Its amazing how far away you can view clouds/storms. A few years back I was sitting on the beach in the evening at Tobay (eastern Nassau) and was watching lighting out over the ocean way off in the distance. It was the only storm around on an otherwise clear as could be night. I looked at the radar on my phone and the cell was way south of Montauk. I estimated it was at least 120 miles away from my location maybe even 150.
  11. Love summer, love heat, love convection, love tropical humidity and tropical cyclones, Love the beach, Love gardening, Love being outside Love cold (in winter), not a fan of short days, Love snow (in winter), Love skiing/snowboarding, Love being outside. Years ago I was talking to a guy on ski lift in Vermont. I think he had the dream scenario. He was semi-retired and had a condo in Stowe Vermont and a Condo somewhere on the beach in Florida. He traveled back and forth on Jet blue depending on what he felt like doing.. Surfing or Skiing, cold or hot, beach or mountains. .
  12. Nick have you used the clear sky chart on this page? It has dozens of sites you can check all across the state (and country) specifically geared toward astronomers. Darkness, cloudcover, humidity etc all factored in. I think it uses CMC data. http://cleardarksky.com/csk/ Other than that, I've used the HRRR like you said simply becuae it updates hourly and cloud over is so finicky. Good luck.
  13. I'll just throw this out there and then watch the board lose it's mind, but I actually love the way it feels out this evening. Mid 80s, dp around 70.
  14. Curious what make/model you have. Was looking into getting one.
  15. Goose, I appreciate the thoughts
