Just saw that on the local news a little while ago. Wow.

The boat is soical distancing.
 
2020-07-04 12:23:32 AM  
Doh the sailboat broke up!
 
2020-07-04 12:27:45 AM  
Going to be spending some time digging a few of those cars out of the sand.

Man the Governor went all out to prevent people from going to the beaches this holiday weekend.
 
2020-07-04 12:34:59 AM  
And there goes the stream.
 
2020-07-04 12:51:31 AM  
The boat starts at about the 25 min mark.

Could the beachfront part of the town be sinking a bit? Yeah, yeah, I know... sea level rise. But was wondering if how they built it up along the shoreline has flattened out a bit.

My dad rented a vacation house there for a couple summers in '89 and '91. It's about as summer-y a place as  you can think of.

Didn't Giliigan's Island cover this in 1964?
 
2020-07-04 1:08:29 AM  
Yeah, but I had to turn on my electric blanket this winter, so it can't be because of climate change.
 
2020-07-04 1:09:10 AM  
Some old geezers are gonna have a field day on that beach with their metal detectors next week.

The Minnow wasn't a sailboat so I don't think so. The waves really didn't look that big but they farked up that boat.

Looks like it is literally built on the sand, why expect differently?
 
2020-07-04 1:23:32 AM  
So if there's a Tesla in one of those flooded streets will it electrocute everyone on the block?

The multi million dollar shacks right on the ocean are toast! But a half mile inland is a sweet ridge, maybe 80 to 100 ft up... bet those folks are glad they only paid 800k for there 2,500 sq ft four bed 4 bath place!

Does a regular car battery electrocute people when a regular car is submerged?

lots of climate deniers down there.

that being said, class of 47 is a really great bar that is probably filled with sand right now.

No. Low voltage.  That water may be a more important problem.
