Here Comes Another One
It's been quite a year for corrosive winter storms. Four big ones, including the Blizzard of '13 have bitten off 25 feet of eastern Cape Cod shoreline at a time, grinding up beach parking lots and steps that help access the beach.
Another nor'easter is on the way and expected to stick around offshore for the next 36 hours, churning more angry surf in the direction of our fragile dunes.
As the video below illustrates, the Cape is slowly melting away. You can't stop the Cape from eroding, so you might as well have a little fun with it. Our friends at the Cape Cod Times online produce quirky but interesting videos.
Check out some chosen erosion of the eastern shore, the section that begins at the "elbow" at Orleans and goes northward to the"wrist" of Truro.
And let's hope for the best with the storm that has us in its sights yet again.

Hi Maureen, listening to Diane Sawyer and heard about your next storm to be. Your neighbors will want you to move back to Syr. and bring the storms here. I've been home 8 days and we had one hour of sunlight, late on Tues. So dark, but no storms. Stay safe and hope you have an early spring with lots of sun. Have good memories of Marconi and Nauset Beaches.
