Yes, it was a terrible storm.  And many sections of town were hit especially hard from the extreme tides.

YET…we live on an island.  And it’s not that uncommon for water to spend time beyond its typical borders.

After all of the media attention, it’s important to know:

1) Store owners are already on site cleaning up and putting everything back in order

2) The water has drained – thanks to our sandy soil!

3) Homes built within the last 30 years or so are elevated for this very reason

4) The Boroughs of Avalon and Stone Harbor are committed to beach restoration, and will make the necessary repairs to allow safe access across the dune paths

So please share the news that our beautiful little island is resilient and open for business!

I will take more pictures this afternoon and post to Twitter (below is First Avenue in Stone Harbor).
