Yes, Summer 2010 Is Over

16 08 2010

The post from the other day talked about water temperatures “way out there” in the ocean and how La Nina had really kicked in.  But, I didn’t realize just how prophetic that post was until the water temperatures plummeted right on the beach.

On Saturday morning, it felt like a bad dream.  There we were at Uppers all commiserating.  Seemingly overnight, the ocean temperature went arctic on us.  It was probably only 58 degrees, but it may as well have been 50.  Nobody had booties, gloves or hoods at hand.  So, we all just complained to each other.

It was just like sitting in the lineup in February.  Low quality wind waves and cold water.  And, yes the calendar still says the middle of August in the northern hemisphere.

Hopefully Winter 2011 goes away as quickly as Summer 2010 came and went!
