Well, good Tuesday morning to you, Red Bank-Shrewsbury area friends and fans.
The threat of thunderstorms proved to not become a reality, so the Fair Haven Firemen's Fair next door was on again as usual. And there were a couple of surprise guests to get kids in the back-to-school mode at one booth.
There's another threat of thunderstorms today and tonight, but chances are 40 percent, not 100. There's only a 30 percent chance during the day, and it's supposed to be partly sunny with a high temperature of 83 degrees.
So, in making good use of that end-of-summer sun, here's the tide table information for Sea Bright from sunrise today into tomorrow:
2013-08-27 6:18 AM EDT Sunrise 2013-08-27 8:08 AM EDT 0.41 feet Low Tide 2013-08-27 2:45 PM EDT 3.37 feet High Tide 2013-08-27 7:35 PM EDT Sunset 2013-08-27 9:03 PM EDT 0.67 feet Low Tide 2013-08-28 3:12 AM EDT 2.92 feet High Tide 2013-08-28 5:35 AM EDT Last Quarter 2013-08-28 6:19 AM EDT Sunrise
And here are a couple of tidbits about the amount of sunlight and moonlight today and the phase of the moon from www.tides4fishing.com:
"The lunar phase is a Waning Gibbous. Today we will have 13 hours and 16 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 12:57 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 13 hours and 51 minutes."
In addition to the fair, today and tonight …
