Hurricane Sandy - morning surf in Florida

Hurricane Sandy spared Florida, but the winds and impacts over the Bahamas brought some great looking waves to shore this morning. These pics are from Delray Beach around 8am today:

Boca Raton hosts the Debate - minutes from home

A major event is just minutes from my house this week. On Monday the third and final 2012 Presidential Debate is being hosted at Lynn University, Boca Raton, FL. The weather today made for a perfect walk to take a look at the preparations. I parked at Patch Reef Park and made the loop around to Military Trail - which will be closed all day Monday 10/22/12. The debate tickets are reserved for students or I would have loved to go!

Lynn University has had a little facelift work done to prepare, and the campus looks great.

This countdown sign has been in place for the past few weeks - 2 days to go:

News crews, security teams, and other involved groups have been arriving on the campus the past few days. A helicopter is circling overhead nonstop now.

The ducks on the outer perimeter pond are not impressed...
