Wow, the heat, the sun, the weather!!! We are having an amazing summer :) I am buckling down to work today and my daughter is headed to the ocean. Ah, surf and sand and sun sparkles. It is this time of year that the water becomes warm and swimable. It has been heating in the sun for these past few months and it is warmer than usual this year. Good news for swimmers and unfortunately hurricanes too. Those storms get their strength from the temperature of the surface water.
This is Earl you see below. Eeek! Saturday it will approach Nova Scotia and appears to still be a category 2 storm. Blame those warm waters. It can still veer off to sea. We have six days to watch it. Click on the picture to be taken to Wunderground and track it yourself.
