Found: Cat

Are you missing a stocky cat? This kitty has been hanging out around 58th and Chilberg.  A Beach Drive neighbor describes the kitty as:

“He has a long tail and was not spooked by me but would not come near me. A bit larger than the average with thick looking legs. He did not seem feral but wary. He is not here any longer but hung out for about 20-30 min. Hopefully he is just roaming and will go home but he does not look like any of the neighbors cats and the raccoons are back so wanted to check…”

Are you missing a puppy? (FOUND & REUNITED!)

Update 9:30AM Found the hound!

Thanks to several Beach Drive neighbors… Charlotte, Judy, Kevin, Jeff, guy with stroller, lady with dogs, passing cars with sightings, etc. we managed to track Brownie down and reunite him with relieved owners.

Original Post…

Reports are coming in of a puppy who looks to be about 40 pounds and a lab-sheppard mix, running scared around Jacobson and Beach Drive.  He is too frightened to come when called.

Jacobson closed due to a tree

Jacobson was closed due to a leaning tree that is in the process of coming down.


Hopefully Jacobson is re-opened by the time you read this post!

Gale Warning in effect starting at 4pm Today

It seems so calm right now, it’s hard to believe we could have waves splashing over bulkheads over the next 24 hours.

Our next high tide is a 10.19 at 4:46 pm tonight…just after the gale warning is in effect. Marine forecast (below) currently has waves building to 4-6 feet in the afternoon starting from the NE and switching to SW in the evening.

The high tide following that is 11.72 at 6:00 am Sunday morning. Marine forecast is for waves of 3 to 5 feet from the SW.

We’re making sure our pumps are ready…just in case.

Windy, Wavy, Rainy Weekend

We are “on watch” for the weather this weekend because of the high tides along big winds that are heading our way. Hopefully everything simmers down before the weekend – however, it’s always best to be prepared for worst case scenario.  It’s looking like a good weekend to cuddle up with your Valentine…after making sure you have enough gas for your trash pump, generator is working and you have spare candles.

Sailing Sea Lion off of Emma Schmitz View Point

We’ve been watching a large sea lion floating off the shores of Beach Drive for the last couple hours. You may not even notice him as he looks like a log for a majority of the time…until he lifts his big head for some air.

We did contact Seal Sitters, as I’m told others have as well, and were told that he is probably “sailing” (also referred to as “logging”) to reserve energy during this cold weather. If he does come to shore or seems in distress, the person at Seal Sitters asked that they be called again.




We’re getting a dusting of snow along Beach Drive. I just took this photo moments ago.



The National Weather Service forecast just a little accumulation of that white stuff overnight.

Tonight: Snow likely. Cloudy, with a low around 31. North northeast wind 5 to 10 mph becoming east southeast in the evening. Chance of precipitation is 70%. Total nighttime snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.

Sunday: A chance of rain and snow. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 41. South southeast wind 5 to 8 mph becoming calm in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 40%. Little or no snow accumulation expected.

I love snow on the weekend that melts away. :)
