No. The oil spill was in the gulf of Mexico, not quite the same as offshore New Jersey at Sandy Hook. Don't panic until you hear authoritatively that the oil has been carried North by the Gulf Stream and made a sideways jump to NJ beaches, especially Sandy Hook.
Most water heaters work without a power connection. Can a heating unit do this?
YES AND NO, There are some green energy systems that would work. They are kinda expensive to set up initially but would continue to work during a power outage. They use solar and wind energy to charge battery banks which would power your furnace. Only gas operated waters heaters work without an electrical connection. If you had a gas fired furnace the solar and wind turbine systems would power you fan blower and give your home heat without being hooked to the electric company's power grid.
If you are 40 minutes away from the shoreline you should be fine.But you do need to get supplies.Get water and non perishable foods.Also batteries flashlight candles. A battery operated radio.You need to run a tub full of water so you can flush you toilet if the lights go out.Also you can freeze baggies of water so that if the lights go out you can keep the food in the freezer cold.You really need to listen to your local news cast they can tell you what is going to happen better than anyone else.It's not a high level hurricane but it is a very large storm.If it keeps skirting the coast it can strengthen.If they tell you to leave then by all means leave.
How much does it cost to get into Sandy Hook,NJ? Including parking and the beach itself? Do they have a?
Sandy Hook, NJ is run by the National Park Service. There is a $10.00 parking fee per car per day (if you arrive very early, I think before 8:00am, parking is free). Parking is very limited so come early (before 10:00 in any case) There are no other fees or charges. Actually, you can walk or bike in for free, but this probably is not practical.
Sandy Hook is NOT the place to go if you want the usual NJ shore boardwalk, amusement park, food, etc. kind of experience. There are no boardwalks or any other amusments there, just beautiful beaches. One beach has a restuarant & snack bar, some others just a small snack bar. There is a clothing optional beach (both gay & straight sections), and also "regular" beachs.
There's an amusment park in Keansburg, NJ (20 min w/out traffic).
How is the weather in Gunnison Beach (Sandy Hook) in August? Is it a good time to go?
August is usually the hottest month in New Jersey, so it stands to reason that the beach will be hot. Be sure you wear sandals or something, as the sand will be very hot.
BTW, are you sure you know about this beach? Be entirely sure you obey the posted signs!
How can I get to Sandy Hook from Manhattan on May 22nd? NOTE: Daily ferry service doesn't start until the 23rd?
a. Drive. Take the Holland Tunnel to the NJ Turnpike Extension to the NJ Turnpike to the Garden State Parkway to the road that runs east across Monmouth County.
b. Take either PATH, NJ Transit or Amtrak to Newark. Then take the NJ Transit line that serves the towns along the shore (not sure of its name) to a train station near Sandy Hook.
Jersey Shore Today - Best beach to play in sand with child?
All beaches would be free until next week.
Sandy Hook charges $10 for parking. Plus there is a clothing-optional beach there. Probably not a family friendly idea.
Many of the beaches won't require beach tags until Memorial Day weekend, so you should have lots of options. I'd say try Point Pleasant Beach, there is a lot there for kids too.
Just remember, it will cooler along the water and with a seabreeze it might be a little chilly.
What is the regular crowd at sandy hook nude beach like?
It's a VERY large crowd each weekend and a little less so during the week. It's along walk from where you park. There's a mix of people in all demographics. If you don't get there early, you won't find good parking.
If you visit Gunnison Beach very often you should join Friends of Gunnison Beach (on Sandy Hook).
What is the adress for the Sandy Hook Lighthouse in New Jersey?
If you use Bing Maps, you can type in Sandy Hook Lighthouse as a destination, without an actual address, and it will give you directions and an estimated time.
The lighthouse has no actual mailing or street address, but is located on Hudson Drive in Sandy Hook, NJ. The street is quite short, and the lighthouse is quite tall and there are good signs leading visitors to its location once you've reached Sandy Hook.
the fishing some of the back bays for stripers, fluke, bluefish and if you get really lucky, weakfish. you can find all these in raritan bay. look on google maps for places that look accessible to fishing.
good plugs to use are bombers/redfins,needlefish, poppers, bucktails and flies
If a military base was opened after the civil war and closed in 1919, what was it used for?
JHC can anyone read????????????
In your link it clearly states that it was the FIRST US Army Proving Ground.
Now you can look up what Proving Ground is.
Ft. Hancock was a SEPARATE facility. This was a common practice. If you take a look a the Golden Gate Nat. recreation Area you will find that it has the remains of Ft Baker and Ft. Barry on the north side of the Golden Gate and Presidio SF/Ft Point on the south side. In both cases they reside on the same plot of land!
Swim baits (3", 4" even 5" ) all white or blue or black backs on a white belly. Deep diving Bomber Long A's clear with mylar reflector, blue back, black back, bleeding mackerel pattern and orange belly crankbaits will all work (fish everything in a bay the same direction the water current is moving) white feather jigs tipped with thin strips of squid. I don't know about there but here all bay species slam 12"red shad colored worms (bass baits) they think they are eels I'm sure, I would try those using a lead head to get them down and I would use them often.
I'm not sure about piers but the jetty at 8th st. in Avalon is a really good place to catch fish... and right now stripers. Call the bait & tackle shops down there and they can hook you up with more places to try along with the baits and lures that are working. Don't forget the bug spray! Take some white bucktails & your favorite topwater plugs on an incoming tide.
why do tides along the same coast occur at different times?
It is because of the way the moon bulges the ocean closer to the equator. As the Earth rotates, continents move into the bulge, those in lower latitudes (closer to the equator) will enter the higher tidal zone first. As the earth continues to rotate the edges of the tidal bulge spreads out moving north and south giving the effect of a time lag the further north/south you move away from the equator. This is why the tropics generally have bigger tides than higher latitudes
Its a bit hard to explain without the use of diagrams.

Why Do We See Massive Shootings In Suburb Schools?
It's just another Liberal plot to take away the rights of Americans. Liberals place deranged individuals in these situations, under hypnosis, to commit all sorts of hideous acts of violence. Then when triggered, the actor offs himself to eliminate any chance of their plot being uncovered.
What are people views on family and recreational nudism?
I think family nudism is fine, provided of course there is no sexual contact.
All of my family have seen me nude (and I don't mean when I was a baby - I am 16). I sleep nude, and often go from my room to the bathroom and back of a morning without bothering to put anything on. I have met my Mum, Dad and brother in the hall at various times. The first time was a little bit awkward but now we just go about what we are doing.
Mum and Dad are OK with it so long as I at least put pants on before coming down stairs.
I have seen my brother nude on a number of occasions, mostly passing each other in the bathroom. Again it was awkward the first time but after that it was cool. And I guess every kid has walked in on their parents while they are getting changed. In our house now we all can walk in on each other at any time and no one cares. Which is really cool.
What is the craziest/dumbest thing that happened to you when lifeguarding?
Some blue kid got me fired.
Just kidding of course. I did get to rescue a young boy who had swam into a nest of mating water mocassins when I worked at a spring fed pool in Wacissa Florida. That was freaky. Noone was bitten, but we were intertwined with about 30 snakes.

How can I persuade my wife to go naked on a nude beach?
Your situation is pretty common. My wife is the same way. She comes along and knows that everyone is fine with her not being nude. She has gradually become more desensitized and recently at a nude beach in the Caribbean, she did spend a few hours there nude.
It is her nature to be more self-conscious about it than it is for me, so I just accept her visiting on her on terms, and she seems to be fine with her hubby being naked with the others.
What can be done to avoid the erosion of barrier islands?
A barrier island is sand not rock. That sand is going to be moved by waves, wind, and storms. It can't be stopped but it can be slowed by allowing beach plants to grow. (This is why so many beaches ban ATVs.) They help hold the sand in place. Boulders also provide a temporary delay.
I live a little more south and can tell you Sandy Hook is only good because it is closest. If you hit up the parkway South the next best beach is Seaside heights (exit 82) where they have a boardwalk and OK waters but a lot of high school kids.
If you really wanna get crazy you can go to Long beach Island where is probably the only place in Jersey u can surf since waves are best there or at least attempt to. nice area though and older crowd. btw Atlantic city is about 20 min away from there.
I Personally like Wildwood (exit 3 Parkway South). I've always had a good time there, the people are nicer and there is a humongous boardwalk with lots of activities and three piers of like rides and games, the beach is good with plenty waves and sand is extremely soft (espically compared to Sandy hook) shoppin here isnt huge unless u want a shirt that says.."party all night, Sleep all day"
