Re: Hurricane Sandy: How did you do?

BTW since I know you know Ocean City well, my friends said the eye passed over them
During the storm, I was watching a webcam overlooking the boardwalk at about 12th street. When it went offline at about 1700, the last image was of the ocean breaching the dunes and heading for the boardwalk. Using WindAlert, I monitored the ocean buoy about 20 miles east of OC. Projections showed a drop in wind speed from ~60 to ~18 for 2 hours (I think that it was around 0000). That would support your friend's statement about the storm's eye.

Sad to see the town where I grew up so devastated. The street where my sister has a condo in Longport has 2' of sand in it. Good thing that her condo is on the 2nd floor... not sure of it's condition though.
