RedBankGreen POST-SANDY, A BRIGHTER SEA BRIGHT

is the link to the post storm pics. Also some video on ahnj.com and ahyc.net.
Hard to tell from the pics. That might buff out. I can imagine a "soft" landing, but floating debris and other boats banging around can make the landing the easy part. A pic of my friends boat at AHMH shows a picnic table and a dink under the boat which is on its side, the stb stands under the boat. I also worry about the second high tide and water intrusion.
There's is a sea bright video on Youtube. Houses and buildings were blown over. I've been without power for 8 days, so I can't see the actuals, by Wx cahnnel was calling for 15-20 foot storm surge and 21 foot wave heights. I would have felt better at a mooring, but it was not an option.
