Christmas Sanda

We've seen this before
On Christmas Day hundreds of parks department employees shoveled and swept the sand from the boardwalk.


Strong winds can easily blow sand onto boardwalk
There is more sand on the boardwalk than last week.  Much of the sand that was already swept off in earlier operations is back and the work to get if off is once again repeated.. 

This is sand that blew back across the boardwalk because

 a) the sand that was swept off the boardwalk was piled too close and too high on the beach near the boardwalk so strong winds easily redeposited the sand back to where it was taken from or/and
 b) no snow fencing to block and reduce the amount of sand blowing from the beach onto the boardwalk.  (existing snow fencing was destroyed by Sandy)
