The narrow strip of land that separates freshwater Niles Pond from the Atlantic Ocean was severely damaged during Blizzicane Nemo.

In several places along the footpath, there are cuts clear through the granite dune and a sandy beach is forming on the Niles Pond side. Shrubs, wildflowers, and ground covers that help retain the sides of the causeway have been uprooted and washed away.

Hello Saint707–I don’t have the same view in all four seasons as the Blizzicane Nemo wintry porch view that was posted this morning, but found these from June 2011–same porch, same rose bushes.  As I am not planning to venture further than my porch this afternoon, I thought we may all benefit from a glimpse today of spring yet to come.
