One of the highest high tides (a “king high tide”) in San Diego occurred this morning at 8:23 a.m., a whopping 7¼ feet.
Naturally I headed to Ocean Beach.
The temperature was a very wintery 58°F and the wind was a blustery 33 mph.
Prior to November 2001, that would have felt like 40°F.
The post-November 2001 formula
says that it felt like 52°.
I trust my bare, exposed ears, and they definitely tell me that it was more like 40°F.
There were people jogging in shorts and tank tops, playing football, walking their dogs….
….all just normal activities on a sunny summer day….
There were even photographers out taking pictures of the waves.
Crazy, crazy people.
When it’s effectively 40° outside, you should be inside.
