Well we’ve made it through.  Power finally came back on at Luke’s parents late last night – still off at our place for 2 days and counting.  Here are some photos we took as it peaked and of the streets surrounding our place.  We all got very lucky and there are many many people very much worse off.

So Remember this photo – this was the second day a few hours before high tide:

Water Receded:


Note that there is actually a whole wooden bridge bit we had no idea was there!

And remember the park that I had in the last post:
