Thumbs up! on September 2, 2010, from a surfer off Satellite Beach, Florida, in Hurricane Earl's waves
Waves of activity: I feel as if I've taken a sabbatical all summer, at least from weather. It's been the most pathetic lack-lightning season I can recall since I've lived in east-central Florida. We've had strangely dry weather for weeks at a time. I tried once to squeeze lightning photos out of some pathetic storms, but the result was so lame that I declined to post photos. So even though I am not hoping for a hurricane to hit us here, I enjoyed seeing the churning waves generated off our coast today by Hurricane Earl, which was northeast of us and threatening North Carolina's Outer Banks. Spectators outnumbered surfers at Satellite Beach. See the photos.
