Crazy, crazy people

Picture of the Moment

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

wind chill formula

says that it felt like 52°.

(Global warming?)

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.

    And it’s was almost 70º Christmas Eve in New York City! Looks like it’s going to be a bumpy ride all over. All the best to you and your loved ones today and the next year.

    Over here it’s also heatwaves for Christmas but ours are proper [improper?] summer ones. If this is a taste of things to come, I don’t like it! Merry Christmas to you and Zoe. 🙂

    And speaking of global warming… We celebrated Christmas in South Jersey with 70+ degrees. Our Decembers are usually below 30 and with snow. Lol! My home was so warm we had our windows open…no fireplace this year. 40 isn’t bad for us… LOVE the pic of the wave… Beautiful. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! 🙂
