December 2010 Minus Tide Alert!

(Photo above shows a recent minus tide at Will Rogers State Beach on Friday, Nov. 5, 2010 in the late afternoon, sun shining and no wind... it is with these conditions that "it is said" voices can be heard out to sea...

Wow ! Check out the Minus Tides (below) coming up in a few days on our local beaches in the afternoon! Dec. 18 - 22nd, inclusive, will all have minus tides in the afternoon and before sunset !

If the weather is good, try to check one of them out! It is said that if the weather is clear and the air still, you can hear mermaids, dolphins and ancient mariners conversing and laughing.

So make plans, if you can, to check one of them out.



Until next time.....

Just in from Mark Spyder Thompson re the vectoring and colliding forces occurring in the late afternoon of this coming Tuesday, Dec. 21, 2010:

Mark wrote:
"The day got even more propitious: This year's winter solstice will coincide with a full lunar eclipse for the first time in 456 years. The winter solstice is the shortest day of the year, and it has not fallen on the same day as a lunar eclipse since 1554, according to NASA.

So, yes going out, even in the rain at 4:17 pm (on Tuesday, Dec. 21, 2010) will be a special moment in alignment and tides."

Thanks Mark !
