Hurricane Floyd in Cape May

Hurricane Floyd in Cape May

 

Hurricane Floyd passed by Cape May without much rain or wind. The sky was clouded over and a pentagon of blue opened up over the wetlands. The bright blue shape in the dark sky was so unusual that I decided to paint it. The wetlands are just west of the Garden State Parkway at exit zero.

This was the first hurricane that passed Cape May by after we moved here and we did not yet know that that is the usual pattern.
