End of the world

Postby Hoosier Daddy » Mon Jul 23, 2012 2:28 pm

Less than 24 hours ago forecast was for strong steady SW all day and into the night. This morning..poof gone. Now, 2:30 it's showing Gary at 12 wsw, MC at 5 sw and Benton Harbor at 15 w. Is this the end of the world as we know it?

St. Joe was pretty sweet, although a bit gusty, until 11 am Eastern Time. Then - there was plenty for a big kite and board.
It took some extremes (getting up at 4 am) but well worth it.

South HAven fizzled as well. I got 40 minutes in and then it died. Nice afternoon on the beach.....but some wind would have been nice.
