Hurricane Sandy on her way...

These were taken this morning about 2 hours before the mid-day high tide. I'll try to get back up at high tide to take more photos. You can see that the waves are already surging well over the jetty. Also note that the sandbags did get deployed down on Strandway Beach around the staircase to protect it from being washed away (those are the white lumps in the third picture down from the top.)

As of this moment, we still have power in OMP, although I've heard there are outages around the Cape. Some gas stations sold out of gas yesterday as people stocked up and/or left Cape Cod. Schools all over the Cape were cancelled for today, and some of the schools (like Nauset High School) are being used as
emergency evacuation points.

Everyone stay safe!
