JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. -- The combination of high winds, and temperatures that were far from beach-like kept many away from Jacksonville Beach, and the businesses that line the coast.

"It's not good for business," said Keith Doherty, General Manager of Lynch's Irish Pub.

Temperatures were in the 50s at Jacksonville Beach on Wednesday.

That, combined with wind gusts as high as 30 miles per hour meant a slow day for Doherty, and many others.

Doherty said it's part of owning a business on the beach.

"It's something we expect. We're at the beach - we get nor'easters coming in. We get storms - it's part and parcel of the game," he said.

Many businesses hope to bounce back this weekend.  That's when Jacksonville Beach will have it's first annual Celtic Festival.
