Considering the fact that Hurricane Hanna was touted as such a big deal a couple of weeks ago, this nor'easter was more damaging (to the beach). As the storm came ashore on astronomically high tides, the intracoastal waterway (normally a quarter mile from our back garden) rose to spill into the sound and then into our marsh. Amazing! We walked out to the beach yesterday, just at high tide and we were stunned to see the huge waves. There was a great deal of debris in the water, from stairs and sand fencing, so there is going to be a bit of cleanup over the next few weeks. High tide this a.m. was still being pushed by the storm but this effect will subside as we move through the day. We will be out this afternoon taking a look at our oceanfront dune line and will post back later or tomorrow about our observations. We always keep in mind that Mother Nature giveth and Mother Nature taketh away, particularly when you live on an island!
