Well not really, Surf Sister demanded one over on Facebook. But be that as it may, I have no objections in principle to gathering together for some communal wave sliding.
We are now in the fall of the year here in SoCal a season that can be many things for many people. I can be the best of times and it can be the worst of times
Blah blah blah blah
So if we have all recovered from my literature brain freeze I will continue, so here is the deal, fall can be great with both northern and southern hemispheres churning out swell, which if fortune smiles upon us can lead to crossed up perfection.
It can also mean that we are stuck in the doldrums for weeks where neither hemi does anything interesting but just sits and sloshes about.
So here is the mornings sat gifs. I always go with the ones with the pretty colors although I have no idea what they mean having lettered in the droll science instead of something practical like meteorology.
While it doesn't look particularly bad or anything maybe some wind swell over the next couple of days, the swell of the decade isn't going to happen in the next few days. At least one coming from a NW direction. After that maybe, there may be something on the horizon (in this case both a literal and figurative reference) if that reddish hue on the edge of our globe goes medieval the event could be on!
The northern hemi being covered, more like cloaked in uncertainty lets move on. So then you have the southerlies, we enjoy two variants, local south swells generated by hurricanes off Mexico and the thunder from down under, massive storms that travel huge distances to delight us here in the US.
Local - too soon to tell, while "tropical cyclone activity in not expected in the next 48 hours" I do like the looks of those dark spots on the weather graph. They look like claw marks and that has to be good, werewolves and zombies being so the rage this season.
I am notoriously bad at doing any sort of predictions so please don't book your travel arrangements to Mexico and then blame me when the only waves you find are the ones in the pool when that drunk gringo fell in.
So moving on.
If you live on the west coast of South America you have already have waxed up your big wave boards.
We may get some of this depending on what this blob was doing during the last 48 hours when I wasn't paying attention, preferring instead to spend time composing bad poetry and blowing on dandy lions in the vast rich meadows and forests which surround my palatial estate.
I got nothin
As my Gram Gram used to say to me, "Prana, we'll just have to wait and see..."
I we decide on a date and a location for the next mat meet I'll post it up.
