New year, new adventures in the Garden State.

 

Stone Harbor, Cape May County. Downtown 96th street and Third Avenue. This was taken  during Hurricane Sandy by a co-worker who is with the volunteer fire department.

Stone Harbor 48 hours later. We were very lucky.

I have a picture someplace of me in the tractor on the farm after a snowstorm.  I was clearing out the driveway and the drift in front of the garage was as high as the cab on the tractor.

I had to climb UP out of the third floor attic window in a blizzard with yeti-pterodactyls swooping at me to even get to the tractor.

I had to climb out a window with a shovel once to move a 6 foot drift that blocked the front door.

Sure this ought to be in the exaggerations and lies thread.

Looks to be on the quiet side rig

 

 

In July it will be 90 degrees and there will be 50,000 people here.

Sure appears quiet this time of year. Is there a lot of businesses that don't make it through the winter? Down in Gatlinburg, TN they have a lot of business die off during the slow season.

There are a few local shops that are open all year long. Most of them close in October and reopen in April.

 

I think the census was 300-400 year round residents in Stone Harbor and 50000 tourists per week in July and August. That's a lot of people in a town that's 2 miles long and 1/2 mile wide.
