I ventured out this morning on my last round of hurricane errands.
After picking up more groceries and filling the tank I headed over to Firefighter's Park in Union Beach, NJ which faces Raritan Bay.
I live 2.8 miles inland from the shore and it's amazing what a difference that small distance makes. The wind was rocking the car, it was difficult to open the door and there were tree branches all over the road.
The wind was pushing in from the water.
The water was high and every time the wind blew the foam rushed up over the wooden piling. It stung my face.
This house was being reinforced. It faces the bay. I love how the statue seems oblivious to the work going on behind her.
I have no idea where flying watermelon came from. Beware of flying fruit folks!
The town has these earth movers strategically placed near all the spots off Route 36 that normally flood.
Stay Safe Everybody.
