We've been going through my grandfather's slides and getting them digitally scanned. We came across some cool Hurricane Carol photos from Duxbury Ma. Many of the locations where the pictures are, are now mulit-million dollar houses. I'm thinking the damage would be much worse now.

My grandfather owned 10 acres on Saquish beach and sold them after carol. You can see the breach picture of how close Duxbury beach came to be wiped out of existence. My grandfather promptly sold his acreage on Saquish beach for pennies on the dollar. The current going rate on Saquish beach is $1million per acre. Thanks Grampy.

I also included a couple of winter photos so you can see just what a real winter looks like.

We think this a ship that grounded on Duxbury beach and they're attempting to remove crewmembers.

Nice. My mother always talked about the Carol-Edna sequence and some of the winters that followed. Wish I had been around for those!

Winter of Jan 2004 probably surpassed those. I saw massive glacier boulders in Feb....2-3 weeks after the thaw began.

Carol,Edna,Hazel. Within 2 months I experienced 3 full blown hurricanes. I was going on 8, I'm going on 66 now. It hasn't happened since 1954 in the NE.
