Hurricane Igor, Ocean City, NJ

It was stormy most of the weekend and the surf was slop, but things cleared up perfectly for a couple of hours this evening. I was on the beach in Ocean City, NJ with my friends Allan and Earl. It was one of those times when everything comes together perfectly for a short moment…

I asked my friend Earl, who spends up to 360 days on this beach every year, how many times he's seen it get like that. He thought about it and said, “Maybe once in a few years.” He really wasn't sure…

It didn't last long. Soon the window closed, the sky went grey, the wind changed and wave conditions fell apart. Still, pretty amazing while it lasted…
