Well, folks. That’s all she wrote! Hurricane Irene has come and gone and, frankly, I wasn’t all that impressed. Of course, we didn’t get hit too hard in Tinton Falls, but I understand that other parts of New Jersey are flooded. Anyway, the pictures below are from yesterday during the mid-morning/afternoon. The first 8 pictures are a view from the Boardwalk in Asbury Park as the hurricane swells started hitting the beach. The second 15 pictures are from Ocean Avenue and Pier Village in Long Branch. There are 2 additional pictures at the bottom of this entry, so be sure to scroll down all of the way!
And the two pictures below were sent in by my Mom up in the Lake Rogerene section of Mount Arlington. As you can see, one of the big trees in front of the lake was uprooted and portions of Orben Drive are totally under water.
