Earl Passes By Gingerly

Thankfully Earl accommodated the Jersey Shore by twirling out eastward and moving along quickly.  Little if any damage, and mostly churning seas rather than turning objects.  We could barely detect any wind unless walking the boards or sneaking on to the sand for a closer look and feel.

Venturing beyond Point Pleasant Beach toward Spring Lake and Belmar, even the bands of rain were tightly cyclical and short-lived.  As he spun along Northeastward, Earl headed out to nip the Eastern tip of Long Island, and he may do some damage further north along Cape Cod.  The beach erosion we will have experienced looks comparatively minor.  In the course of Earl’s passing there was beauty, and in his aftermath the skies are once again tranquil.

    Now you New Yorkers know how we in Florida feel about hurricanes and their potential. Yours was a pusscat.


    • Whadaya mean, “you New Yorkers”. I’m a Philly Boy transplanted to the Jersey Shore. “New Yaw-kihs” are the outsiders who invade us and keep the local economy vibrant. Kind of like the role I play when I spend the month of March on Clearwater Beach to help keep the Florida economy vibrant. 😉
