John Mayer's Real Estate Blog: The Calm Before the Storm. Hurricane Irene is Now Off Shore!

The Calm Before the Storm. Hurricane Irene is Now Off Shore!

These photos were taken 2 days ago. Today we have a Category 3 Hurricane (Irene) off shore and I went to the beach to film the big waves. We got lucky once again but the Carolinas will have to brace themselves for this one!

This is what the surf looked like today at the Cocoa Beach Pier. It was only 2pm and the really big surf will happen from 8pm until 8am. We should get a lot of rain and wind from the outer bands as well. I'll post more photos and video in my next blogs.

Yep, we all are eagerly waiting for Irene to bypass us - she is all over - in news channel, in minds of people and I see people running to grocery stores to stock up everything for life!

Your photos are gorgeous and I do hope Irene retires quietly John!

I hope Irene passes you by. I wonder how far inland it will get in NC? My niece just moved to Raleigh. It's pretty far from the ocean in Raleigh....I hope.

Praful - People are funny and some can panic. Stocking up is a good thing but you can't go overboard.

Hi Wanda - Irene is about 200 miles off shore right now so we dodged another bullet :-)

Jon - It's supposed to hit the N Carolina coast on Sat then head on up to Long Island where it may impact New York City.

Such beautiful pictures you are really good at taking them! Be careful and hang on John!

John, looks like you are going to be missed for the most part. North Carolina to New Jersey are in trouble, apparently. Why don't people just move to the west coast? Oh yeah, earthquakes! I look forward to your next batch of photos.

Hi Sussie - We're good. All of our hanging plants and bird feeder have been taken down :-)

Hi Ted - It doesn't matter where on the planet you live. Nature has us all in her sights :-) I wouldn't want to be in N Carolina right now.

John, Beautful pictures, I am glad that the storm missed you guys, Now if would only take a right turn and miss the Carolina's and Northward!

Hi Tony and Darcy - It would be nice if it fizzled out before doing any more damage but it's just too BIG! Good luck to the North.

Hi John - I was noticing that Irene is planning to take a similar path as a vacation I once took.

Great photos!

Barbara - Make sure you post some big waves and watch the rip tides!

Posted by John Mayer, Your Beach Area Expert (Oikos Realty, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach Florida) over 8 years ago

Thanks Marc - It sounds like that would be a nice trip (minus the Hurricane).

Posted by John Mayer, Your Beach Area Expert (Oikos Realty, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach Florida) over 8 years ago

John - All of your photos are stunning, as they always are. . .But I am amazed at the number of people out on that pier soaking up the juice in that 4th shot.  I'm surprise their collective weight doesn't collapse the pier and toss them into the sea:-)

Thanks Myrl - That's tame compared to Key West. Those guys are crazy down there :-)
