8/18/5 Report - Finally New Developing Tropical Weather To Watch. Civil War Ironclad CSS Georgia Being Raised.

Written by the TreasureGuide for the exclusive use of treasurebeachesreport.blogspot.com.

We finally have some weather to watch.  This area will most likely become a named storm.

I've been saying how unusual it has been to have such a small surf for such a long period of time.

According to NOAA, a cyclone will most likely be forming in the Atlantic (80% chance).  That is the first in quite a while.

Weather.com says, The month of August is typically active in the Atlantic, averaging about two named storms annually (1851-2014).
It's not very often we go through an entire August without a single active named storm. In fact, the last time it happened was 18 years ago in August 1997. Before that you have to go back to 1961 to find an August with no named storms.
Thanks to goldnugget for initially alerting me to this development.


I received information on the token I posted yesterday.

The information shown here come from the follwoing numista.com web site.


Mitch King mentioned that the center was punched out when used.  I saw an example on eBay without the center, so that must be right.

I haven't yet seen a date for it though.  It seems to be general purpose and must be modern or current.

Thanks much to Mitch King and Penzfan for the information.


SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — After 150 years at the bottom of the Savannah River, the armored skeleton of the Confederate warship CSS Georgia is being raised to the surface one 5-ton chunk at a time.
Navy divers who began working in late June to recover cannons, unexploded shells and other artifacts from the riverbed finally started midweek on their last major task — retrieving an estimated 250,000 pounds of the Civil War ironclad's armored siding.
Here is the link for the rest of that story.

New pictures of amazing new gold finds on the Treasure Coast will be released later this week.  You won't want to miss that.


We have a slight bump in the Treasure Coast surf today, but not much.  Keep watching for Dan to develop.


Happy hunting,
