Oh, I never said that I wasn't mystified- I am. I'm sure we'll get more details in the coming days/weeks.

Re: Halloween Hurricane

Having worked in Atlantic City for 18 years in one of the casinos, they are the safest place to shelter and they are on the boardwalk and beach. Sometimes the street ends flood due to the storm sewers being long pipes from street ends buried under the sand reaching out into he ocean. The governor was probably misinformed

The problem with nor'easter s and hurricanes for those of us on the east coast is wind and water

Water is divided into storm surge., usually felt in the northern quadrants of the onshore flow of a hurricane. And flooding. Most people who have never lived on a barrier island like Atlantic City, most Nj seashore communities, NC islands. Don't understand the true ways the danger exists for flooding. It does not come from the ocean side.

A barrier island has a by or back bay behind it with an inlet somewhere. When a hurricane rides up the coast it's head flows NE winds pushing we're in the inlet. High tide occurs but the water cannot come out because of wind direction, and the next high tide comes into the back by on top of he previous one, a hurricane moves fast so this Galen's once, while a northeaster happens for 2-3 days thus 4-6 high tides on top of each other. Islands lie Atlantic City do not loos from the ocean side rather they flood from the bayside. Moving into the back or center of the island will not be prudent. Moving back just far nough o beat the storm surge is best.

Atlantic city is a large island called Absecon island and consists of 4 cities. AC, Ventnor, Margate, and Longport. i think the highest ground point s 10. Ft above sea level

Re: Halloween Hurricane

We've decided that a nice boutique Napa red goes best with this hurricane. Things are looking up.

Re: Halloween Hurricane

I've been channel surfing the past 30-40 minutes. This is pretty big. It's on all the news channels, most are having almost exclusive coverage on it. CNN, CBS, NBC, ABC, WGN and even MSNBC during their Politics Nation show.

All, that is, except Fox. Fox was covering the attack on the US Embassy in Libya, the Romney campaign and how Obama is losing states were once a lock for him.

Well, I just flipped over and FOX was on Sandy coverage. So, if anyone was political here, I'm afraid it was you.

The problem here is that the spit of land that separates this 'pond' from the river is not very high. There is a shoal in the middle to north side of the entrance. You hug the entrance to the south side when entering or leaving. If you look on google maps for Bowline Point you should see where the shoal shows up at low water.
The bright side is that there are some trees around this 2 or 3 acre pond that one could tie to. The down side is there may already be a boat (or 2) in there.
Members of my club like to raft up their boats here in 'normal' conditions.
I would not want to be in their shoes.

Please pass this on to your Canuck friends.

Re: Halloween Hurricane

How much water is in that pond Caleb? The ENC charts have no depth info. With the wind forecast as it is: SE, anchoring over on the Croton side anywhere along the beach would probably keep them well protected. The big tide surge will come on tonight's high tide.
