Finally!

My hopeless waiting has turned hopeful! This morning, at 5:45am, I was woken by the dogs that I'm currently looking after for the week. They wake me up at this time every morning to be fed and let out because that's when there owner usually gets up and leaves for work. It's kind of miserable, but i've been relying on them to get me out of bed and to the ocean scouting for waterspouts. While they were out roaming the backyard, I took a look at the radar to see if anything was over the ocean. The forecast called for unseasonably dry air moving into the area, and just like I expected, not a drop of rain in the air. I decided to just go back to sleep. I woke up again at 9am and took another glance at the radar. This time there happened to be one tiny shower sitting off the coast of Boynton Beach and it was almost stationary. I've noticed when waterspouts formed in the past, they're within those stationary cells or the ones that keep forming repeatedly over the same area. I grabbed my stuff and ran out the door. On the 10 minutes drive to the beach, I thought I saw what might look like a small notch in the cloud that could be a waterspout from the road, but the backdrop was to bright to tell with the sunlight. I arrived to the beach, walked up the boardwalk leading to the beach, and there it was! Finally! Day 3 out of the 7 days of staying near the coast and driving to the beach each morning I got lucky. It wasn't the most impressive waterspout and it may or may not have been connecting with the ocean completely, but none the less it was awesome to see! Hoping for some bigger and better ones in the future. Other than that, it's a beautiful Saturday with some more possible storms on tap for the interior/west coast later today!
