I went to a wedding in VA Beach over the weekend. With the storm still 450+ miles away there was no real "beach" visible, just water. The waves were crashing on the boardwalk. I made the mistake of wearing my Bears hat outside to put some luggage in my car on Sunday morning. Finally picked it up from a puddle about a block and a half away. I'm sure someone saw it and got a good laugh.
