    Indeed, growing up on the Cape we’d rush to the beach whenever one of these storms blew up the coast. That is until Bob didn’t just blow up the coast, but landed right on top of us. We didn’t like Bob.

  3. I’m planning a Sunday beach adventure to see what fun items have washed up. And of course rushing out Thursday afternoon for bread and milk. Wait, does that happen for hurricanes or only snow storms?
