Beach Rose RV Park is about a half mile from the beach in the town of Salisbury Beach. We are in a sheltered area with large (like 100′ large) trees all around the park, so in here it is a lot quieter than down by the water.
We were down at the beach for a look a couple of hours ago: even though we are probably 700 miles from the storm right now, and hundreds of miles from where the storm is forecast to come on shore, what we saw was an extremely dark sky and dramatically increased wave activity . There are no birds flying, you can see hundreds of pigeons that have found refuge on a restaurant roof top not far from the beach. Property owners along the beach are boarding up their windows and tying down anything that can move in the storm. Marilyn’s comment was that it felt “eerie”.
We came back to the park only to turn on the Weather Channel to find out we are now in the seemingly ever-expanding wind watch area. Apparently, beginning tomorrow morning, we can expect winds in the 50 mph + range for at least 24 hours. We will have to weight down the dogs when we take them out to do their thing tomorrow and yes, I will make sure they have their leashes on.
We all love to travel to see and experience different things. Once again, I’m thinking we should be careful what we wish for.
