Today is the 9th straight day of east. The nightmare continues until Sunday....so by then we'll have endured 12 days of onshores. Groundhog Day on steroids.
Groundhog Day was a classic movie from back in '93, starring Robin Williams & Andie McDowell. The storyline is basically this guy who's a weather forecaster that gets sent to cover Groundhog Day. It's when this thing called a Groundhog (bit like a squirrel) comes out of it's burrow for the first time after hibernating during the winter, and is meant to signify the start of spring. He has to cover the story every year and is pretty frustrated by the whole deal.
Anyhow, he wakes up the next morning to find out that he's actually stuck in the same day, Groundhog Day, again, and again, and again. Just having to relive the same day, every day. Kinda like what we feel like now. Wake up....east. Wake up....east. Wake up...east. You get the picture. Good idea to go grab the movie on another of our easterly days, it's a good laugh.
A brief respite on Sunday sees the west sneak through for a day. Problem is there doesn't look like there's a drop of swell. So how's that for further frustration - west at last.....and flat as a pan. East back on Monday, then thankfully looks like the hoodoo is broken on Tues/Wed with some west again, and maybe, just maybe, something surfable.
"Surfable" being a relative term, as our standards are so low by having had to put up with onshores for so long, that even knee high looks like a good bet!
Someone just go burn a board or something to turn the ocean back on please....
