Note added January 5, 2017: This was one of the many “hundred year floods” to hit us in the past decade. The most recent and most severe was January 2016. I leave this post available to remind us of the trend in sea level rise. Everything in this photo including the landscaping has been rebuilt, replaced and raised since 2008. We now have a new seawall to the left of the photo that protects this area.
October 29, 2008 – The wind rocked the cabin at Money Island NJ for two days. Waves crashing against the bulkhead sprayed as high as the telephone poles. The floating dock broke loose. Ron’s boat washed up onto the beach.
