Dorian 2019: Ormond-by-the-Sea, Wednesday the 4th

I wasn’t quite able to get update photos at North Peninsula State Park, but I did manage to swing by a nearby beach in Ormond-by-the-Sea a few miles to the south. These images were taken shortly before 11am, or so, as Dorian was churning…

Dorian 2019: Tomoka Marsh, 04 September

Tomoka Marsh at Bulow Creek was, predictably, a bit inundated by water earlier today. This is par for course whenever we have tropical storm action in Ormond Beach, Florida. What’s interesting, and what I need to check out further, is that I don’t think…

North Peninsula State Park; Volusia county, Florida (31 August 2019). Though we likely won’t take a direct hit from the heart of Dorian’s vanity, we’ll still snag some impressive tidal surge action along our coastlines in a few days — coastlines that are already…

Dorian 2019: Good Fortune, Blue Skies

Bulow Creek State Park; Volusia county, Florida (31 August 2019). Today’s 11am updated forecast pushes Dorian’s projected trackline even further offshore as it passes us in Volusia county, Florida. Very good news for my stretch of the peninsula. If this projected track holds, we’ll…
