Yea, I would pass too. Really don't like the freezing spray warning, just a bit chilly up there?

It warmed up to 10 above today but the winds been blowin 25-50 all night around here, now i've got to go plow the drifts out of my driveway. Hows things going down there? still lots of damage left over from Sandy ??

Really depends on the area. On LBI driving north you go through stretches of hell and then stretches were it looks like Sandy never existed. Barnegat Light faired great. The dunes are so wide and tall there the ocean never met the bay. Minor flooding at worst.

The bay areas like Beach Haven West, Forked River and Waretown all took a beating. Lots of reconstruction going on there. It is getting better all the time but it will take a while.

You can keep the temperature as that was about the temperature of my wife's icy stare when I told her we were leaving Sunday night for the Hudson and should be back for X-mas Eve dinner.

Not expecting much after a week of wind but we want one more shot. The bite has probably moved down to the southern canyons off Jersey. Wind is suppose to drop out to Light and Variable for Monday. Would like to partner up before going to setup a search strategy.
