Well, the Weather Channel folks were out on St. George Island this morning at dawn to shoot their spot on Ida in front of the waves, but it was pretty lame. The rain started this afternoon around 3PM, but we probably had more wind late yesterday with the front that came through - moreso than the wind from Ida. It is supposed to pick up some tonight, but we've had nothing but some gentle rain so far - the surf is still high, as it was yesterday with that front, but nothing to write home about.
I know those hurricane reporters on the weather stations just have to look for something to talk about, and it's been a slow couple of years for them around here, but St. George Island's interaction with Ida is tame at best.
Which we are all thankful for!
