Our Nor'easter at the Shore...

As I mentioned yesterday, on October 2nd 
we were awaiting the arrival of a Nor'easter, 
and we were also anticipating the arrival of Joaquin.

The Nor'easter arrived and flooded many areas by the shore,
but Joaquin was a no show.

In my neck of the woods we had driving rains and a lot of wind.
Days later, the ocean and inlet were still feeling the effects.

On Sunday, the hubs and I took a ride down to the beach,
and waded through the flooded streets,
as we always like to get a peek at the ocean and inlet 
after a storm.

 The waves were high,

really high,

the ocean was angry,

and the sea wall was unable to hold back the water.

  9. Our south Jersey beaches got pummeled as well. Where once there were beautiful dunes, now stand jagged sand cliffs. The ocean met the bay and flooding was everywhere. Why does Mother Nature throw such hissy fits?
