Thar She Blows!

Longport jetty

A favorite pastime for the locals during a Nor’Easter is to go to the water’s edge to view the storm’s wrath. Water and wind can be a lovely combination on a summer day but not during a Nor’Easter! Mother Nature can be destructive as I’m sure this “little” storm will prove, but I am truly fascinated at her ferocity. How about you?

Daily Gratitude: Boats safely tied up.

Quote of the Day for YOU: The sky was dark and gloomy, the air was damp and raw, the streets were wet and sloppy.  The smoke hung sluggishly above the chimney-tops as if it lacked the courage to rise, and the rain came slowly and doggedly down, as if it had not even the spirit to pour.  ~Charles Dickens

  1. I’ve never understood that trip to the water’s edge. It always struck me as dangerous! The shot is gorgeous and I can imagine the sound of crashing waves is awesome too…

  2. You can really feel the power of the wind and water in this shot. I love going to Portland in Dorset, England for the same reason. The strong winds there lash the waves against the rocks. I find it exhilrating. Once when I visited, the weather was so bad they had to close the famous Portland Lighthouse to tourists because of the weather!

  3. Ter, both the leaf photo and the rough waves are beautiful, I love both but those leaves sure have a tendency to facinate one with all the colors of fall.
