    Not eyes on, but a cop friend I just talked to said Sea Bright was hit bad with flooding. At 8am, at high tide, the surf was crashing over the seawall. Many sets of steps going over the wall were destroyed or damaged. Large jetty boulders displaced. As the tide has dropped, so has the water level on the ocean side. But the river water is still high in town, but as the tide drains out, a lot of that water will also recede.

    No word on the Hook yet.

    super cool place to live, except in storms... so what do you do, take a kayak over to assateague to surf?

    Ha, I wish i had the time to do that. I work on the Island so I take my truck over to surf. Got it really good on Friday. 6 hours of fun surf before the storm. I really wish I could go now but they closed the bridge over. I will be hunting north a little later. Here is an example of how protected my yard is from the wind, my chicken coop is unfinished and has a tarp as a roof covering. I took the chickens out and put them in the shed before the storm and expected the coop to be wiped out. Went out this morning and the tarp is still there and other then a little water inside there is no damage. That tarp is held on by staples. We went through Isabel in the same way, no damage, no flooding, nothing. We must be in a weird wind shadow right here.

    i stayed inland for a night and lost power, it still isnt back on they said. when i got back here i found that we hadn't even lost power once, there was no flooding on our end other than the wetlands (i live in lbi), and no wind damage whatsoever. the beach on the other hand is completely gone on the north end, and a sick sandbar has formed. it looks like the water reached the top of the dunes over here but never really made it over the side. the dune grass is all matted and some private walkways are ripped up, but i didn't see any real damage to any of the houses. i can't wait to surf the sandbar tomorrow, i checked it at dead high tide and it was already breaking 3-4 times farther out than it has all summer at low tide
