I went to the beach yesterday. Weather was sunnier in New Smyrna Beach than in Virginia, but the winds from the storms offshore kicked up the surf to dangerous levels. The lifeguards posted riptide warnings and kept everyone close to shore.
Both Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach allow driving and parking on the beach. The sand is packed hard, so cars can drive safely. The first Daytona 500 races were actually on the beach. But with high tide and rough surf, the lifeguards closed off beach parking.
One person parked his or her SUV on the beach at low tide before parking was closed. The SUV was left there outside of a beachside bar as the tide rose. Everyone in the bar was taking pictures and wondering whose car it was. One lady walked out to the car as if it was hers, bringing cheers from the entire bar. But it wasn't her car - she pranked the entire bar.
My son and I had burgers at the bar (actual cheeseburger in paradise!) then left before someone claimed the car.

saarinista: Attention people of earth: it is currently SNOWING across the Southeastern United States. I'm a native of the Midwest, and I chuckle when i see how worked up people get about a half inch of snow here. Ye Gods, you would think Armageddon was upon us.

saarinista: lonelywifey Also, we must consume mass quantities of milk and bread to fend off the cold, and stock up on toilet paper for God knows what. Under no circumstances however should we try to warm ourselves with sexual activities !

lonelywifey: h I remember when I was a kid schools NEVER closed for snow days (this was in Massachusetts). Now it's like the schools close the night before if there's even a whiff of snow in the forecast!

misssunnybunny: We had a snow day yesterday for no reason; I can still see the grass in my yard as it is barely covered with snow (this is MA). Crazy!
