The public is invited to view this Sandy exhibit at the Monmouth County Historical Association at 70 Court Street in Freehold, NJ.  They are open from Tuesday through Saturday 10-4 until October, 2018. Parking is easy.

The exhibit is impressive, with slide shows, videos, oral history recordings, scientific explanations, and special displays.  About 15 Blogfinger images  by Paul Goldfinger were chosen largely because of our work in Ocean Grove.  Most were seen in a slide show organized by towns. Another feature used 6 of our photos of volunteers at the OG beachfront. (see below)

One of our images was used large,  (see below) depicting a Neptune Comitteeman, Randy Bishop, comforting a resident of Shark River who had to put out most of her  first floor furniture and belongings to the curb. The residents were upset in large part because scavengers were showing up to take some of their curbside belongings. We will show some of our Shark River images from November 1, 2012.

Ocean Grove  was hit hard during Sandy losing most of our boardwalk and fishing pier. Bob Bowné  photographed when Sandy carried away the Fishing Club and he took the most iconic image of that day. (link below)

These oceanfront Victorians took a beating but they survived as they probably did during many storms since the late 19th century. Ocean Grove was relatively lucky.  It would be two years before the Boardwalk was partially rebuilt, and it is still not done.  But you can’t hurry love:

Says Jean around town:  “Today’s nor’ easter is pretty intense.    Walking on the Fishing Pier was challenging with gusts up to 60 mph. There was only one adventurous guy holding his own.
The phrase “Thar she blows” seemed to fit.
I was spitting out sand all the way home.”

KERMIT RUFFINS  and  his band of  N’orleans musicians sound like they’ve been on Bourbon Street too long. But they do know something about what to do during a storm: have another “hurricane”  and then pick up the tempo.

9:30 am.  Governor says that flooding will be mild. Awaiting flood reports from the OG southside.  Bands of snow will create waxing and waning snow fall all day into the evening.

9:39 am  Report from Rick Cuttrell:

Snow:  Severe blizzard continues into tonight with heavy snow through this morning and then snow at varying intensities this afternoon and evening.

There is still the likelihood that sleet will mix with the snow over coastal sections of Monmouth and Ocean Counties for a period later this morning and early afternoon.  Any sleet will change back to snow this afternoon.

Snow will taper off and end between 9pm and midnight tonight.

Coastal Monmouth/coastal northern Ocean, including the Neptune area:  18-24 inches (will mix with sleet for a period Saturday morning)

Flooding:     No flooding reported from OG Southside.  Sunday morning will be  1/2 to 2 feet above normal and will produce minor to moderate street flooding in the usual flood prone areas.

Winds:   Along the coast, Northeast winds of 25mph to 40mph, with gusts to 60mph today.  Winds will slowly decrease after midnight tonight and Sunday.

11 am:   While you are waiting for the storm to pass, find something to do, but be careful—in 9 months there will be a surge of births.

11:30 am.  From Neptune Mothership, land of good and evil—-:    PLEASE stay off the roads.

As of 8:30 AM, 10.5″ of snow has fallen in Neptune.  It is possible that we will receive another foot of snow between 10:00 AM and 6:00 PM with snow falling at a rate of 3″ per hour at times.

Snow plowing continues, however our efforts are being hampered by flooding along the Shark River and dozens of vehicles stuck in the roadways.

4 pm:  from Megan Williamson on Asbury Avenue:    “The winds have been relentless blowing up from green way. But credit should be given to Neptune Township. They have run a plow down the street a couple of times an hour since about 2 am.”
