Cape May Survived Huricane Irene

Posted on: September 15th, 2011 by

Cape May, New Jersey and it’s Bed and Breakfasts survived Hurricane Irene.  As usual the weather folks got this one wrong.  Don’t get me wrong, we complied and evacuated as requested but how many times can you cry wolf before one starts to ignore the warnings?  I am thankful that we have a Cape May to come back to.  If the weather folks were correct in their prediction,  I think Cape May would have been wiped off the map; so I am glad they were wrong again.  It was quite an interesting week for me.  Starting with the calls to cancel reservations for the upcoming storm and at this point I didn’t even know anything about it’s pending arrival.  It is very frustrating for innkeepers here in town as we are constantly struggling with the poor predictions of the weather people.  I have to say as long as I have been here I think they have been wrong 100% of the time.  Well, maybe 99.99% of the time.  That doesn’t mean I would want anyone to put themselves in danger but when you are trying to survive in our business it really makes it difficult to overcome the poor predictions, even the routine everyday ones, when someone is telling folks it’s going to rain and it turns out to be a beautiful sunny day.  I kid around all the time with people.  I tell them, “It doesn’t rain in Cape May”.  Now in reality it does but very infrequently and definitely not even close to the amount of times they predict it will.   So the next time you want to know the weather in Cape May just call me and I’ll stick my head out the window and give you a much more accurate assessment of  the current conditions here in Cape May.  LOL
