Tropical Storm Claudette is on its way

Get ready for some rain tonight, Pensacola Beach! Tropical Depression 4 (soon to be Tropical Storm Claudette) formed in the Gulf last night and is headed our way!

We walked out to the beach this morning. The waves were coming in from the east, which is kind of unusual. The storms and wind were starting to show up!claudette-1

This poor little guy got washed up by the strong surf:

At least the surfers can take advantage of the waves before the rain comes in:

Now is the time to make any last minute preparations for hurricane season if you haven’t already: Candles, drinking water, emergency radios, extra batteries, and flashlights should all be stocked up on if you live out on the island! And most importantly, remember not to lose your head (like this guy) when the storms come rolling in!

    I think the turle nests hatched while I was away! I didn’t see the area fenced off when I was over there.
