Snow Falls on the Point

It was almost spring here last week, and then this happens... *Sigh* ... I guess it really is still February after all. Overnight the trees and beaches of the Point were blanketed in an inch or two of the white stuff. At this moment as I write, it's still drifting lazily from the sky. It would be pretty ... if I weren't already finished with winter.

Got an email this week from a resident who was shocked to see how much erosion the dunes have suffered over this winter. I think it's a combination of the high seas and the high winds, pushing and pulling at the dunes from both directions. On the plus side, the Seaway beach *looks* nicer to sit upon. On the negative side, there's only so much dune left to replenish that beach with, before it's eaten away entirely. Still hoping Mother Nature brings back sand when Spring shifts the currents and winds.

Where is Spring? Maybe the groundhog was right after all... darn....
