Keeping an eye to the Sky!

Hurrican Watch

Well, sports fans, it is Summer, and as Brother Jimmy (RIP) says so eloquently in the tune below, it's time again that we are "Trying the reason with Hurricane Season," which many Worldwide have to cope with here on Flats Nation for about half of the year.,"

Simply love that version of his tune for sure!

To this end, there are plenty of Sites and Smartphone Applications one can use to keep an eye on the sky, as I like to say. But finding one without having to dig through a lot of extras, advertisements, political agendas, etc., etc., to reach what one needs to know quickly is not always easy!

Be that as it may, and usually faster than you can take a sip of Java in the morning (or afternoon for a quick pick me up), I think you will find this Site link (save as a favorite also) below the best one just for such and already paid for access via our Tax dollars at work:

This and quickly (with a single click) find out if you need to hitch up the boat, lower the shutters, and fill up the bathtub. Christmas and Hurricanes do have one thing in common, though: Eventually, you will wind up with a Tree in the House if you are not careful!

New roof time!
And we sure do not need a repeat of Hurricane Ian that we are (still) trying to recover from!

Do not forget about the other tabs on the same page for other sections of storm-prone major bodies of water so you can (also) keep a quick eye on the sky for our friends on the Pacific side of Mexico and other Central American countries (many with great Flats Fishing!)... So you can also know quickly if something is brewing that could be headed your way! Just hover over them and click. 😉

And even places like Hawaii, which I hear is another awesome place for Bonefishing; you can make a large swing from East to West and view a satellite image across a very large section of the inter-tropical convergence zone if you live there or while making quick trip plans.

Again, it's all free (paid for already via your tax dollars), so you are in the know and quite possibly sooner than most who rely on other means. Hope this helps you know when to go dig out the coolers and grab some ice yourself now 😊

In the meantime,
