Well, good Tuesday morning to you, R-FH area friends and fans.
The threat of thunderstorms proved to not be a threat at all, so the Fair Haven Firemen's Fair 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 for 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, tonight …
Rumson Borough Council is scheduled to meet on tonight at 7:30 p.m. at Borough Hall.
Hotel Transylvania will be showing at Riverside Gardens Park in Red Bank at nightfall, again, courtesy of Shore Flicks.
Next door, Red Bank will be going to the dogs again with its second Dog Days of Summer from 5 to 9 p.m. on Monmouth Street. It's a pooch-friendly evening to which all dogs and their masters are invited to roam Monmouth Street and dine outdoors, shop and just socialize.
Lunch Break in Red Bank continues its program to collect fresh garden veggies and provide them to those who visit. If you have some garden veggies, share the wealth.
Stay tuned for more news and features. In the meantime, I'll see you around the towns …
