Monday morning doesn't seem so miserable on this unseasonably warm and sunny November day in Ocean City Maryland. Here on 76th street at Atlantic Shores Realty, we are enjoying temperatures in the low 60's and a 14 mph steady breeze. It's a stark contrast to what we saw two weeks ago when Hurricane Sandy made landfall on the East Coast.

Ocean City weathered the stom fairly well considering the "Frankenstorm" reputation that Hurricane Sandy developed into, thanks in part to our extensive dune system which protects our valuable real estate. Volunteer Beach restoration and community clean-up has also helped to restore Ocean City almost to its pre-hurricane status. Some beach errosion and wind dammage still remains, but considering the potential distructive nature that this storm embodied, Ocean City quite strongly held its own.
