No flooding. High winds that knocked down trees and devastated homes on almost every block in our town and that of surrounding towns.
We won't have power for a week to ten days.
No school until next week.
We are fine here.
We have a generator. No damage to our home.
We consider ourselves lucky and blessed.
Our prayers are with all our friends and neighbors who have suffered damage and loss here and down at the shore.
I don't think we can actually get a grip on how everything will be different going forward...
Public transportation in NYC? We shall see.
Summers down the shore?
Doesn't look good for awhile.
Here are some images of our favorite place, Long Beach Island.
The bay met the ocean for two days and we will see how they come out of this-
The Chicken or the Egg, every one's favorite late night diner.
The tennis courts in Beach Haven. I can't tell you if behind the courts is the ocean side or if it is the bay side- very disorienting.
The famous "shack," a landmark known to us all. It sat in a marsh on the right as you cross the causeway onto the island. It is now gone.
At low tide. Sand is everywhere. So much damage.
