Charley Passes by Cape May

08/16/04

Cape May - Charley was barreling towards Cape May Saturday night with 30 to 40 mile per hour winds and gusts up to 50 miles per hour..enough to do some damage to beaches, as do most hurricanes that rip up the Atlantic Coast.

But somewhere between Virginia and the tip of New Jersey, the mighty hurricane, now a tropical storm, lost it's energy.

Cape May got a good overnight dousing...perhaps two to three inches.

But on the beaches, it was business as ususal. Instead of big waves, strong winds, and empty beaches there was umbrella after umbrella and smile after smile.

The morning after the big storm, the beach was wall to wall sun bathers.

This time, we were the lucky ones.
