Two Years Later, Almost to the Day Sandy Hit...

Mother nature has taken one of the last things standing at the site of the former Ascension Beach Club at Norwalk Cove.

Our beloved maple tree was toppled by last Saturday's fierce squall that hit the marina (and the Oyster Festival)  with winds reaching 65 MPH per the Norwalk Cove weather station.

The site is now home of Harbor View at Norwalk Cove

The maple is in the top background above the delicious spread.    

65 MPH winds can do that !


Luckily, no one was sitting at the picnic tables!


These fast moving summer storms can pack a wallop and do extensive local damage.  See the SailFlow wind records for Saturday taken nearby Cedar Point Yacht Club that indicate 52 MPH gusts...

Keep your boat prepared for this type of squall. Tie everything down (including small children), don't leave cushions out and close hatches and windows if you are leaving the boat.
