The first high tide is here and the surf has reached the dunes. The bay has not yet breached the walls but is very close. The storm surge has started. Hurricane Sandy is still many hours away from land fall. The center of the storm is suppose to hit in Atlantic City. The greater coastal storm serge will be to the north and heavier rain to its south. Plenty of experts are predicting the ocean is going to meet the with bay. This storm has had me thinking of all the great memories I have of this island. It has also made me realize how fortunate we all are to have it here in NJ. Be safe everyone and let’s hope for the best.
