Snow at the Beach?

Hey, I'll guess I'll start using this place finally.

Last week, Ocean Shores had snow which is a really rare occurrence here at the beach. The beach at one point was even covered in ice! The winter months provide the best storm watching. An excellent vantage point is the North Jetty, located at the southern tip of Ocean Shores, but be careful: winter storms can bring in 25 foot seas and high winds which can be very dangerous. Monster waves create a powerful roar which can be heard throughout Ocean Shores.

Ocean Shores News
It looks the City of Ocean Shores has finally come to their senses and are moving forward on spraying the lake and all the canals with a pesticide to kill all of the weeds this coming spring.

The city is also working on developing a skate park for the kids over at the North Bay Park. Fundraising efforts are underway and hopefully this summer, a new skate park will be up and running.

The City has also received federal funding to install a new roundabout at the main intersection of Point Brown and Chance A La Mer. It's about time!

If you haven't checked it out yet, has a New Virtual Tour set up on the website (top left corner on the homepage) so you can view the scenery of Ocean Shores and the North Beach area. CHECK IT OUT!

So anyway, I'm Jeff Daniel and I'm a realtor at Coldwell Banker Ocean Beach Properties here in Ocean Shores. Most of the upcoming, down the road blogs will be about real estate and stuff, but for now, there's some news to get this thing going.
