NOT 5 MINUTES LATER....... Here comes, and goes, another!
If that one had cleats on it, I'd have roped it, but there was nothing to throw at.
Passed my floaters by about 2 feet.
My brother has a house on South Captains just got his boat out Saturday.
I would guess South Forecastle is in the same situation....both my sister and I have houses on the street.....mine has about an 12 inch crawl space.....not high enough in this type of storm. How high do you expect the tide to be in the next few surges ?
The streets are a little different...the one across the lagoon is about 1' higher than mine....the wind and the rain are increasing..just had some gusts that were shaking the whole house...damn...

I'm up in forked river now a little higher but not much. The winds are really coming on now and water just coming over top of bulkhead
Be safe, I'm thinking of old friends down there looking at your pics
Well, if it's any consolation to anyone, the tide is going down. I'd say it's down a foot in the last 90 minutes or so.
The wind let up for a few minutes, so I took a quick video. If you use Roundabout Creek, you know this stretch.
Joey just saw on tv that they are calling for a 10 to 12 foot storm surge north of Atlantic city. I would start making arrangements to get up on the second floor of your neighbors house. Stay safe!!
Jst saw the latest forcast. Eye is to hit btwn A.C. And south LBI. Please use your better judgement with all you do from here on out. Btwn 8 amd 9 is land fall. God bless you all. Tim
Live to fish and fish to keep me sane. Tight lines.
You guys should get out of there if you still can so emergency personnel dont have to risk their lives rescueing you because you didnt evaucate.
Joe, the pics are great but stay safe buddy. I think it might be time to get out while you can. It's gonna get real ugly tonight and it looks like Mystic might see the worst of it.

Wow thanks for the video . Man the water came up way over the marsh. Your house is right by the mouth right?
Get out of there man!!!
Get out now...
A real man.............
One thing I never asked was where the f**k my deadbeat dad was. F**k it I guess he had trouble keeping up with every address. But I'd have flipped every mattress, every rock and desert cactus. Own a collection of maps and followed my kids to the edge of the atlas if someone ever moved them from me? That you coulda' bet your asses..
If I had to come down the chimney dressed as Santa, kidnap them whatever it took to keep my kids close to me.
Storm is gaining speed.....will make landfall in about 4 hrs,instead of the original 6 to 8hrs prediction......this can be a good thing.
Joe hope you picked up the kid's toys outta of the yard. Coll OKed you staying here we have a couch bed in the finished dry basement.
We also have a generator...
Someone did a # on you growing up and now everyone on the internet has to pay for it.
