Fun at the Creek Last Week

Sunny, light offshores, mild-er temps - small waves all add up for a fun afternoon.

Nasty Weather Masks Fun Conditions, Repels Crowds

Clean waist to chest waves, light off-shores, and a few pods of surfers here and there. The catch? Snow. But it wasn't snowing at first, this is what I missed earlier (below). Motivating on days I don' have to work continues to be a challenge. Hell, both the water and air temps are in the 30's, so some self slack-cutting isn't all that bad when I don't fly out the door in February to go surf.

That said, I still went surfing in the snow, something every surfer should experience.

It's winter in America

It's winter, Lord knows
It's winter in America
And ain't nobody fighting
Cause nobody knows what to save
Save your souls
From Winter in America

All this BS cold & snow has put me in a Gil Scott-Heron frame of mind. I protest this unjust and cruel weather!
It will be one of these effing things after another until Easter. God give me strength.

Grab from the Hampton cam this morning (below). Yup 5° air temps, 37° water temps.
 This used to be a rare sight, now commonplace.
meanwhile in Sunny Tortola my bud Johnny 'O keeps taunting and gloating:

So if your freezing your ass, wondering when this will all end, this tune might help take the edge off:
And if you're sipping cold ones in the islands now why not enjoy it with a big bowl of of **** you, haha. Bastards!

Philip Seymour Hoffman 1967-2014

The NYT says it best for now: Philip Seymour Hoffman, perhaps the most ambitious and widely admired American actor of his generation, who gave three-dimensional nuance to a wide range of sidekicks, villains and leading men on screen and embraced some of the theater’s most burdensome roles on Broadway, died Sunday at an apartment in Greenwich Village. He was 46.
Too sad - go easy, P.S.H. you were the best, amazing in everything he did.

Two of my favorites, what were yours?
