A look back: December 27, 2010
It doesn’t snow much in Cape May. In fact the last time there was snow on the ground during the holidays was 2010. It capped off the snowiest winter in Cape May history. The winter of 2010 saw 54 total inches of snow, including a 24” blizzard over Super Bowl weekend.
These photos were all taken on December 27th. With rising global temperatures, it’s unlikely that Cape May will see another snowy holiday season for a long time. We’re sharing these shots to remind you that Cape May somehow remains the same, even as the seasons and storefronts change with time.
Clear and bright with over a foot of snow blown across the newly renovated Washington Street Mall.
A dune-like mound blocks the entrances to Making Waves. Decatur Street is snowcovered down to the beach.
Morrow’s NutHouse is unreachable as are stores on Liberty Way. A pathway and the decorated lamp posts in front of the Fudge Kitchen; no one is on the benches this day.
Snow blocking the entrance to the Whale’s Tale. Two bewildered pets look out from Higher Grounds coffee shop on West Perry Street. It’s too deep even for the big guy.
