Then the sand ran out, and it went back to shorepound.
    Sandy Hook hasn't and it's been 25 years since it was first ruined

    Bummmer about OCMD... I don't surf there often, but it seems like they do this often enough throughout the years that the beaches never get a chance to get back to normal (normal sand bars for surfing)

    There is that saying, "If you live ON the water, sooner or later you will live IN the water"

    IMO the continued beach replenishment has nothing to do with homeowners/property owners. Its money. The Federal Goverment provides funding to the state/city/county for the service. Each agency/entity gets to take a portion of the dollars to cover their costs incurred. For example, Federal Government says they are going to fund the corp of engineers to perform the service. State/city/county say that is great so they can take a piece. For every federal dollar recieved they get to take a cut for adminstrative aspects etc associated with the effort. Therefore, no one in state/city/county gives 2 ****s what the money is for - they want it to take their portion. Makes the politicians look good when they cut taxes and programs like these are how they make up the difference. Bureacrats can come up with very elaborate schemes to defining "allowable" costs.

    Local politicians NEVER cut taxes. NEVER. They cannot have their two weekly visits with hookers if they do.....

    That's what it looks like a few years after nourishment. Now they buried the sandbars and back to square one.

    On the mid-town cam (OCsurfcam.com) there were two pilings you could see that marked a small jetty. The pilings were about 8 ft tall or so, now they are completely buried. That st is one of the most consistent, now it will likely be crap for a bit.

    There are spots that come back but the whole town used to break. By the way, Mitchel pics are not always at ocmd - he gets around!
