Hey Frank, It could have been much worse. Im sure my dad told you this but we had 3-4 inches left in our cross base until it would come through the floors. We know Longport is still under water. Atlantic City is pretty bad too. But when they had reporters before the storm, there were none here, which surprised us. When the power went off we turned the generator on and when the cable went we turned the radio on.
When that tide started coming in we watched it constantly and put the furniture up on cinderblocks. But someone was watching our house and when that storm picked its speed up to 30 mph and the wind stayed offshore, we were very lucky.
One guy stayed, Candyman, and I can't believe he was good. Swifts docks were in the street and blown away. Some boats were hanging on a single line. We both would have been worrying about all night, so it really took some weight off my dads shoulders.
The rods are fine, I think. Ill check them tomorrow. I was busy today with the house and taking pictures. I would go tog but theres no place to get green crabs.
Only if I could buy hooks and line to then I could make some rigs! When everything calms down, hopefully we can find some hungry striper.
We all appreciate the concerns and the support, and were all grateful that the worse did not happen. Tell everyone we said hello.
We just want to fish!
Talk to you soon, Hunter
