The Jersey Shore has technically reopened for the start of the season for the first time since Superstorm Sandy, but not too many people were heading to the shore on Saturday, 1010 WINS’ John Montone reported.
Gale force winds were blowing in from the west and chopping up the bay, Montone reported.
In spite of the weather businesses were up and running in Seaside Heights, which normally receives Calcutta-sized crowds, but were instead experiencing a relatively subdued Memorial Day weekend.
“I would have liked a nice patch of weather over the weekend, but I think just one look around shows people are going to come here no matter what,” store manager Charles Draper told CBS 2’s Steve Langford.
