The El Nino front that has been marching across the southern US arrived at the Florida Sea Base today. At 1300 (1:00 pm) the wind clocked from southwest at 19 knots to west northwest at 29 knots. It rained for an hour or so and then the temperature started dropping. A large palm frond was dislodged from one of our tallest palm trees and hit a power line causing us to loose power for an hour or two. All is reasonably well now. The temperature is 66 and still falling. The wind is howling from the northwest (a bumpy nights sleep on the boat tonight). But the power is back on and it’s past my bed time.
Here are a few reminders:
What a nail biter the New Orleans / Minnesota game was. To be honest, I was pulling for NO before the game, but it sure was hard to see Favre take the beating that he took and not feel sympathetic for the guy. Anyway, the Super Bowl should be a good game. Good night.
