Ocean City in the Winter

Ocean city in the winter is beautiful. I love walking on the beach, and taking pictures of the sunset, and the surf. I feel most at home when I am near the ocean. The boards are peaceful and the air is quiet. Its just so lovely.

Some fun info about the sky:
“Like a red morn that ever yet betokened, Wreck to the seaman, tempest to the field, Sorrow to the shepherds, woe unto the birds, Gusts and foul flaws to herdmen and to herds.” - Shakespeare

Red sky at night, sailors delight.
When we see a red sky at night, this means that the setting sun is sending its light through a high concentration of dust particles. This usually indicates high pressure and stable air coming in from the west. Basically good weather will follow.

Red sky in morning, sailor’s warning.
A red sunrise reflects the dust particles of a system that has just passed from the west. This indicates that a storm system may be moving to the east. If the morning sky is a deep fiery red, it means a high water content in the atmosphere. So, rain is on its way.

Like A Local

While you are staying in Ocean City you should check out some local newspapers/tv guides/coupon books. They always have free events listed that you should check out. Ocean city always has amazing free events, from concerts, to farmers markets, and even city wide yard sales and more!

Live like a Local !

The Ocean City Gazette is a local newspaper that tells you what's happened, and what will happen. It is filled with everything local and more (outside areas not just in OC)! From community news to wedding announcements. Nice to know whats going on in case a tourist asks you if you know whats going on ! You'll be ahead of the game !

Ocean City Sentinel
Similar to the gazette, this newspaper keeps the local residents of OC up to date on all the latest happenings and occurrences in the news.

Nash's News
All these papers seem to be pretty much the same, but each one has different reporters and different stories. It's nice to see what different papers have. This newspaper also keeps the locals up to date on all the current news and events, and feature articles.

Beach TV / Ocean City Coupon Book
You can find these little books in shopping markets right by the door, and in some stores. They offer local television listings, which can be good for rainy days and discount coupons for a variety of shops and businesses in Ocean City and the surrounding area. It's a really good thing to have because in Ocean City things can be pricey. Coupons always come in handy !

Sandpaper Gazette
This paper is of local interest. It has only Ocean City news, which can be good if that is the only area you are going to be in.
