Stormy Day At The Marsh
Well we have a tropical system lurking off the South Carolina coast right now that promises to bring rain, wind, and rough surf to the area for the weekend and into early next week. The sky doesn’t really look especially threatening and we actually expect periods of clearing followed by more bouts of rain as the system moves through.
I grabbed a break in between showers this afternoon to head over to the marsh to see how everybody was making out.
Here is a view looking north across the salt marsh with a higher then normal tide almost entirely covering the tall reeds out there.
I saw a few alligators out and they looked totally depressed. It’s May so it’s supposed to be warm and sunny, just how they like it, not grey, windy and rainy. I felt particularly bad for this one young little guy who looked completely miserable in among some of the pond muck and weeds.
There were a couple of brave flyers out battling the stiff gusts including this great blue heron and egret, but most optional flying will likely be curtailed for the weekend anyway.
