    I was just looking at Hurricane Sandy pictures online and saw some that showed a lot of beach erosion at Vero. I was curious as to whether or not the resorts sustained any damage.

    I just left DVB this morning...I was there since before Sandy hit.
    The buildings and grounds of the resort made it through just fine (aside from the expected leaf litter from sustained winds of about 50 MPH). The beach did suffer some errosion, but no where's near as bad as in other past storms. The ramp access to the beach is closed and will need some grading work before it can be re-openned...but there are stairs you can use on the other side of the shed where you'd rent beach chairs (you'll still need your KTTW card).

    Other observations - shutters is now closed for lunch FYI - and (disappointing to me) there is no longer any room service :( .

    During Sandy we got hardy any rain...it was a "wind event" with some gusts upto 70MPH in my estimation. Once it passed the weather's been fantastic 80F and sunny..ocean temp 78F.....I noticed less observance of Halloween at the resort this year....for example the departments did not do their usual pumpkin carving contest....But Super Goofy & Daniel Duck did visit :)

    Another great stay....but I'm thinking of making some calls about the room service (a decision not made by the resort).

    Doesn't seem we have any takers on 2013 thread. I've decided to not lock the thread, it just won't be maintained. At least this way the thread can live or die on it's own.

    Come on folks! Someone needs to step up here. I did it last year and it wasn't a huge amount of work. The VB thread has been going since 2007 and it would be a shame for it to disappear.
