Comment from Dunewood

In Dunewood this past weekend water came past our snow fencing on the ocean but we did not appear to lose substantial dune.  We did lose height on the beach front and will need some favorable winds to get buildup to help us thru winter.  The water in the bay was raging and the highest that I can remember, coming over the ferry dock (ferry had trouble unloading passengers and carts due to tide height). Water several feet high covered our entire bay beach and went over bay front bulk heads  and close to bay front houses.  I could not assess if there was any damage to bulk heads but I think we may have dodged the bullet this time.  I think Chris [Soller] is right to be worried about the bay. The wind driven water appeared to keep building up with each tide and had no suitable outlet out from the bay. — Ron Bimberg
