Wading Into winter’s heart in Longbranch

The crunch of frozen gravel and frosty blades of grass are sure signs we are wading into the heart of winter.

It was a frigid 27 degrees on my drive to work this morning.

But what a sunrise it was. Shades of rich yellow and orange stained steam rising from Filucy Bay, as light feathery clouds float by.

The beauty of winter is easy to soak up.

“I just thought I needed to stop,” said Blade Cummings, who jumped out of his white van to take a snapshot of the morning sun over Henderson Bay.

“This is fun.”

Our cold temperatures will linger for a couple more days, according to the National Weather Service, with the today’s temperatures to hover around 34 degrees. Expect a colder night with lows dipping to 27.

Good morning Longbranch.
