No one really seems to care for Stella …
Nor is the Nor’Easter named for her earning Stella any brownie points. Here on Clearwater Beach we have Stella’s Southern Tail, with winds whipping up white caps on the Gulf as the rays fan out over Tampa Bay.
It was highly blustery this morning, with one of the flamethrowers at Beachcombers lying prone on the sidewalk and palm shreddings strewn along Manadalay Avenue. Not that we’re complaining about something as inconvenient has high winds, mind you.
From what I hear, the Jersey Shore has been spared the snow, but coastal flooding is a serious concern due to Stella’s whipping winds there. New York City is dodging the snow, but a just a bit northwest, in Bergen County, the crossover is dumping big flakes as forecast. Ridgewood has 8 inches already and it’s piling up rapidly. Ice laden power lines are starting to come down. Hope all my friends, family, colleagues, and staff weather the storm well!
