Some fun entries this week, and one a teaser to a future blog post.
First up, a classic from Regular Little Rock Reader
Resourceful, or Redneck? You decide!
Secondly, from Sound Beacher, our ardent beach comber and photographer
The Greenwich Point Park suffered a lot of damage from Sandy and starting Dec. 1st the general public was allowed to return, so too dogs!
Lots of construction going on. Here all the roofs are being repaired on the shade structures along the beach.
Still hammering away on those structures along the beach. Each one has been re-roofed.
The pathway along the waterfront is closed off and they’ve blocked the walking bridges with sheets of plywood to prevent people from using them. I’m sure they’ve been beaten by the crashing bashing waves of Sandy and they are unstable.
The road even got washed out in parts, here’s a crew patching it up. A lot of the stone walls around the point were toppled by this storm and they’d been there since the late 1800’s.
This is strange, take a look at that tree line. On the left the pine tress are dying, I think they got washed by the storm surge which didn’t make it as far as the trees on the right. We need to as Urbane Forester about this. (I have noticed trees on the waterfront streets have something similar, maybe it was the salt soaked wind and water spray.)
Fishermen are still working the waters.
An overnight entry from Urbane Forester adding to Sound Beacher’s photos of the damage at Greenwich Point. Taken November 24:

And the teaser to a future guest post, from reader Michigan
Who needs stinking propane!?
