Beach Woes

It's April 1, which means it's the start of piping plover nesting season and thus the end of efforts to restore sand to the Quogue beaches battered in the mid-March nor'easter. How're things looking? Errr: "This winter's nor'easters took away so much sand that the heavy pounding surf is now digging into the dunes, tearing out grass and leaving clumps of the dense root system exposed below the Ponquogue Bridge," reports CBS 2. And: "Dune Road remains submerged—a dangerous breach between ocean and bay. Despite dredging by the Army Corps of Engineers, surfers who find this spot special say they are worried beyond belief."
