BOARDWALK TRIVIA: According to the Avalon History Center, Avalon’s first boardwalk was built in 1893 at a total cost of $454! Stone Harbor once had a boardwalk too; it was damaged by a storm in 1944 and never rebuilt.
A BIT OF SNOW fell across Cape May County on Sunday, leaving the area under a two-inch blanket of the white stuff. Frigid temperatures will remain for a while—overnight lows are expected to be in the 20s through the weekend.
Local roads were not affected by Sunday’s snowfall, but it made for some pretty scenes around the county!
KEEP AN EYE on this weekend’s weather—a winter storm is expected to reach the area and could bring snow or rain to South Jersey, along with coastal flooding. If you decide to visit the Island this weekend, bring a pair of boots and a snow shovel!
