Hopefully the storm weakens. Even if it doesn't the lighthouse should survive. I love lighthouses. I used to spend my summers, as a kid, out in Greenport, near the end of Long Island. It was like "Flipper". We had two boats and went everywhere. Docked at Montauk, Cedar Island, Plum Gut, Orient Point and a few others that I can't remember their names. Most were obsolete and replaced by new, electronically remote controlled light towers. They were so cool. It must've taken special kinds of people to live in and operate light houses. Total isolation, resupply once a week. Man the lighthouse in all kinds of weather. Rough winters. Home school your kids. You lived on Oceanfront property but no neighbors, no restaurants, no nothing. I wish I could retire at a few.
