A Long Row To Hoe




Not living down here, I won't notice so much the snail's pace at 
which this reconstruction will take place.  As for the residents, it will 
be an agonizing few years until traffic flows smoothly, detour signs 
cease to exist, and a normal groove falls into place in this otherwise
very quiet couple of blocks bordering one of the busiest corridors of
 summer commerce on the entire East Coast of the U.S.

  1. Baydog, glad to see you are up and running. Apparently Sjogin sank but Russ and Julia are ok.

    1. And Sjogin will rise again, I'm confident.

  2. Baydog: I hope your boat didn't float off her stands during high water. We're going to Brigantine tomorrow now that the ban has been lifted--that's assuming we can get there from here...

    1. George, you can always get there from here.

    2. Yep, with a bit of determination. I remember slogging through the swamped piney woods roads around Franklinville after hurricane Irene. The detours took forever! But in the end we made it. I'll be up with the lark tomorrow.

  4. There is a brief notice on the Mantoloking PD Facebook page saying that. "Both of the inlets at Lyman and Herbert are now closed." The picture is of Herbert Street and Lyman Street is about a mile north of there. I assume that means they have dumped enough stuff into the breaches to close the new inlets caused by the storm.

    1. Good, because they don't need any new stinkin' inlets.
