Local Warming....

If you don't like the weather, just wait for five minutes, or so the story goes. Yesterday was one of those days. It was November 1st and temps were in the mid fifties as the sun began to light up the sky. Nothing out of the ordinary about that. I was guiding a group of middle school students out to Masonboro Island, and as we put in at about 10 AM, the temperature had climbed to the mid sixties with clear sky. An hour later, as we explored one of the spoil islands just off Masonboro, the clouds rolled in and the temperature dropped. The water temp was a good 10 degrees cooler than the air temperature, making it more comfortable to be immersed, than dry. Until of course you got out and the air hit you, as some of the students found out the hard way. We wrapped up our paddle a few hours later and the students loaded on to the bus. One of their teachers commented, "not bad for the 1st of November."  The sky had once again cleared and the afternoon warmed up quickly. Nope, not bad at all.
