Nor’easter: Part II

Saugatuck Shores was hit hardest by today’s near-nor’easter. Jennifer Seymour reports:

2 hours after high tide, there was still several feet of water. My husband rescued me and my sons by kayak on the island side of the Saugatuck Island bridge. I lived here during Irene and Sandy, and have seen nothing close since then.

With Saugatuck Shores flooded, Jennifer Seymour’s husband and daughter paddle a kayak.

Just Another Spectacular Sunday

Sure, it was hot today.

It’s summer. What do you expect?

(Well, we did not expect a “heat dome,” probably because we’ve never heard of it before. It’s probably an invention of the Weather Channel, just like winter storms with names like Juno and Xerxes.)

Here’s what Compo Beach looked like at various times today.

Enjoy — and bookmark this page, so you can enjoy it again in January. And February. And March…
