Socked in on a Saturday. 23 September 2023 at 3:30 p.m. EDT, Tropical Storm Ophelia dumps heavy rains across the mid-Atlantic buffeting southern Ocean County, NJ, with steady winds. I’m hoping my LBI friends are managing the storm surge. As for me, I sit comfortably at my large oaken desk watching this week’s Nintendo Voice Chat on YouTube while typing to you, Internet friends.
This here sunset photo looks back to Thursday when the outer fringes of Ophelia first spun up high level cirrus clouds over the region. This high cloud deck brought a fine end of day light show over Cedar Run Dock Road’s salt marsh. A fiery of sign of the weather to come. Of course, Friday’s burn managed to one up this but I wasn’t out to capture it. I was busy scarfing down hibachi for those looking for the but why no picture, Greg? rationale.
I hope you’re all weathering out the storm in the safety of home, surrounded by friends and family. It’s the perfect kind of day to kick back under covers to watch The Lord of the Rings. I also recommend having some soup, stew, or braise going. Tis the season, y’all. Be safe, and be well.
