Last weekend's storm...2010.01.05

We had a snowstorm last weekend, with about a half-foot of accumulation. It was accompanied by a strong northwest wind, and also coincided with astronomically high tides...
Several of our coastal landings took quite a beating. The town will be meeting later this week to perform some triage and decide what happens next.

Paine's Creek landing was under water, and lost a lot of sand at it's west and northwest corners, causing a loss of additional pavement.

Breakwater Landing lost a lot of sand off the beach, undermining the parking lot and causing a loss of about 10' of pavement.

Ellis Landing is totally undermined at its end (note the large pile of sand placed by DPW to keep people from falling off the edge). The underlying drainage structure is now exposed.
