In the words of Michael Doig…

“It’s 10:40pm on a winter’s evening. I promise to heed the following: “Although major evacuations are not required, people are advised to get out of the water…””
Yeah… I don’t think you could get me anywhere near the ocean when the air outside is 50 degrees!!
I have to admit… I do keep hearing some scary loud rumbling sounds that I don’t normally hear at this time of night (or any time of day for that matter). I have no idea what they are- and although I’m 100% sure they are NOT waves rushing down my street- it is still a bit frightening.

  1. Ha! You know you said to me that you were just down in the ocean having a swim, so I sit here still unsure if you were having a laugh in agreement with me or having a laugh at me!
