Preparing For The Perseids

The Friday Night Sea Show
The Friday Night Sea Show

All’s well that ends. Today was dominated by the South, the least favorite Wind of Summer 2013. A thick humid day found little relief in the mucky brown, sloppy cold sea. Not the worst day to end a week on LBI, but not the one you were probably wishing for either. Thankfully some rain & some boom booms in the evening put the breaks on things, and we’re still on track for a little North and a little West tomorrow. The whole upcoming week looks promising and has the right magic mix to possibly bring us some more of that early-taste-of-fall weather we saw just a few days ago. Yes, please!

Cross your fingers that the North/West winds tomorrow will send the humidity plummeting and clear up the skies for the annual Perseid Meteor Shower. While this year is not lining up to match the epic conditions we had last year, the light winds and chance of low humidity will help offset the potential clouds and bits of moonlight that put a damper on the big show.

And don’t forget: if you decide to spend a night on the beach wishing on stars, don’t forget to take a walk and see if you can find some of the Glow In The Dark Mole Crabs we found last year.
