SANDY: A drive around Lewes on Monday morning

Lewes, Delaware — A drive around Lewes Monday morning showed plenty of high water but we've received a stroke of good luck, at least at this point in time. The wind shifted around to the north northwest and that's holding the tide down as opposed to east winds that can pile lots more water on top of us. Keep your fingers crossed.  Here are a bunch of photos taken this morning between 9 and 10:15.

And a catamaran too.

The storm gauge on Savannah Road in Lewes shows Sandy working her way past the 1998 storm but still a long ways from the Storm of 62 heights.  This photo was taken about 9:30 a.m. Monday.

At this point it kind of goes without saying.
