South Beach shack survives storm
The Occupy Chatham South Beach Shack had a close call with the high tides of "Winter Storm Grayson" (or whatever the hell that they're calling it) on Thursday, but the seaside shrine has survived to see another day.
The shack's "front yard is full of sand, & we lost the sea saw, but The Shack still stands, flag flying in the Arctic blast," the shack's Facebook page reported on Friday.
Much like the case of the Old Harbor Lifesaving Station in 1977, the surf made it to the shack's front door on Thursday. Only just last January, there was a good 20-plus yards of sand in front of the shack (see photos below).

UPDATE, JAN. 6, 3:15 P.M.: “The main structure is still there but clearly the water made its way inside. The 'front yard' is gone as is the giant piece of driftwood that sat in front of the shack. The flag still flies.”
