Compared to so many other shore towns and barrier islands throughout the state, Cape May was largely spared the major wreckage which came from super storm Sandy.  Lost power, minors flooding, loss of dunes (or more correctly the dislocation of dunes moved into the streets) and some wind damage is the most Cape May sustained in this week’s storm.  Cleanup of leaves and scattered branches is already underway as evident everywhere you drive around town.  Rental homes are fine and intact in all of Cape May,West Cape May and Cape May Point.  Our thoughts and prayers to go out to all those still struggling to rebuild after Sandy.  Want to help?  Operation Neighbor is a local collaboration of businesses and residents donating and transporting goods needed to our northern neighbors.  The Island Grill and Whale’s Tale in Cape May have offered to be local drop off points for donated goods.
