Last Saturday I was in Cape May, New Jersey — compare the pic I took then to one I just found on line — click to see

CapeMay 9635

The above 2 pics were taken SINCE Hurricane Sandy (I found it online.)

The pic below I took last Saturday 2 days BEFORE Hurricane Sandy.  It looks like Cape May’s beautiful wood oceanfront houses ‘dodged the bullet.’  My husband told me last Saturday as we looked at the pretty houses that they had endured lots of weather for more than 100 years and that they would this time, too.  I feared they would all be a collection of toothpicks.  My husband was right.   Cape May is tough (and they sure built those houses well!)
