    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.

    Yes, all the flower pots are on the raised patio, which is about 3 feet higher than the top of the bulkhead.

    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 ?

    Be safe,

    Hi Chris This is Mark that lived on Longboat I feel for you, I remember 12/91 and don't want to that again
    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!!

    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.

    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.

    Is that because it will hit before the High tide?
