I went down to Jones Beach this morning with Andrea to see what the beach looked like with Hurricane Earl off the coast of Long Island. There was a lot of people there but I was expecting more. We had a great time, mostly laughing at people as they ran away for the water as it would come up. These pictures have a lot of blue in them but in real life, it was mostly gray. We did have periods, short ones, where the sun came out. So far we've only had drizzle but out east in Montauk, I heard that they're getting pounded by rain. The winds are supposed to pick up later this afternoon.
Our chairs are just behind those 2 ladies. We started about 20 feet closer to the water but had to keep moving them back.
