Calm Before the Storm

Niantic, CT  2016

The weather this week in southern New England has been dominated by Tropical Storm/Post Tropical Storm Hermine which is currently spinning in the Atlantic about 175 miles southeast off the eastern tip of Long Island with winds of 70 mph, just short of being officially labeled as a hurricane.    I went to the beaches here in town to see if I could get some pictures of waves crashing on the shoreline here but to no avail.  Despite the strong winds, Niantic Bay was very  calm. Nary a whitecap could be found, much less any real waves.  The storm is expected to meander off the coast through tomorrow, and it might had this way.  We're under a Tropical Storm warning, expecting high winds throughout the night.
