Dependent on the Creator

I've been watching the weather closely in view of Hurricane Lee's path up our eastern seaboard. 

As you know, I love to surf, but it seems like the only time there are any waves in Virginia Beach is when there's a storm brewing. When I saw that there are supposed to be 7-foot waves there on Thursday, the news was so good that I practically fell out of my chair. 

The problem is that the wave conditions will be anything but suitable for riding. 

I called some friends in VB and they confirmed what I was thinking: The waves will be totally blown out. I'm kinda bummed because I was really looking forward to surfing again before the weather turned cold. The last time I was in VB with my board was last summer. This photo was taken on July 11, 2022. 

That day the waves were smallish but the conditions were good. So I'll continue to monitor the surf reports and the weather. As with farming, you realize just how dependent you are on the Creator when you want to go out and catch a few swells.
