Tales of the Tides: Betty Feyel

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

We tried to keep everything as normal as possible. My husband and I had friends over to play cards. They were interesting friends from the Jolly Roger – it was Johnny and Ramona Moore. The winds came up, and the lights were flicking on and off. As we were playing, we were concerned that the storm was getting really bad.

We were a young couple, and we had just moved back to the area from Oregon. We looked at propertyOceanCity and Brigantine, but we moved to Linwood in December. It was a newer house at the time so we didn’t have a lot of trees on our land, and thankfully there was no damage to our house. There were trees down all around, though. I was happy to have lived offshore. It was a safer spot.

It was really scary. We later saw it on TV and saw OceanCity was underwater. There were boats going up and down the street. It was a dangerous place because the water took a long time to recede.

To look back, it was fun at the time. It was like it was yesterday to me. I still live in the same house to this day.
