More on Tangier Island in the wake of Sandy

This is the only news article I have found on the plight of Tangier Island residents. Click here to read the Times Dispatch article.

But a picture is worth a thousand words. Look at this and you'll understand why I worried about Tangier Island last Monday as Hurricane (Superstorm) Sandy stirred up the Chesapeake Bay.

This is NOT how you want your streets to look. Tangier Island needs a seawall on the east side which will cost millions.

But in the meanwhile, make plans to visit this delightful island--after it dries out. Lunch at Hilda Crockett's is a meal to remember.
