Gloucester’s February 2nd Nor’easter brought rain, high winds, and area flooding. Both Nautilus Road and Atlantic Road were temporarily closed at high tide due to over wash. The waves along the back shore were tremendous!!
Notice in the above photos of Good Harbor Beach the water that surrounds the dune. When the parking lot is flooded and the water comes right up to the base of the dune, you can see how the dune is really just a very narrow slip of land. One super powerful storm could reclaim Good Harbor Beach and turn the entire area into a marsh.
Snapshots from a brief tour around the back shore while out doing errands. With temperatures hovering at 5 degrees, Cape Ann was blanketed with a thick layer of impenetrable ice, snow squalls, and sea smoke.
Happy to see the temperatures are heading towards the forties after Tuesday!
