Norma,

I do recall the discussion about the Cracker Barrel cheddar cheese but I didn't realize at the time that its quality was so highly rated. I have eaten the Cracker Barrel sharp white cheddar cheese before, most likely with wine, but not on a pizza. For pizza, I used a New York sharp white cheddar cheese from Lucerne (a Safeway house brand). However, I mixed it with mozzarella to soften the sharpness.

Steve,

Maybe on Tuesday if everything goes well until then.   ;)  It hasn't really been that long and the last attempt was the pits.   :-[

Peter,

I didnít realize the quality of Cracker Barrel cheddar was highly rated either, until you posted the link today. 

Thanks for telling me you have eaten Cracker Barrel probably with wine.  Interesting what brand of cheddar you used with mozzarella.

Bob,

Good to hear you also used Cracker Barrel cheddar on a few pizzas.  I only would need about a half of pound if I mix it and might find some of sale.

I did purchase some Cracker Barrel Sharp white cheddar to try with the Nasonville 3 month old aged white cheddar at Walmart yesterday, but will wait until next week for another Mackís clone attempt.

If anyone is interested, the 8 oz. size of Cracker Barrel Sharp white cheddar was 3.47 at our local Walmart.

If anyone is interested, these are web cams from Wildwood, NJ to see what hurricane Sandy will be doing in Wildwood.  http://networkedblogs.com/E12FA 

http://www.earthcam.com/usa/newjersey/wildwood/

This is what it says about the webcams in Wildwood.

The webcams on the boardwalk are tricky to maintain. They are affected by the weather, power outages, and lightening strikes. If you want to be alerted whenever a camera goes offline or goes back online, use the form here to sign up for alerts!

I hope my beloved Wildwood fares okay with hurricane Sandy and also all other areas of the country that will be affected by hurricane Sandy.

Pete,

From what I saw on facebook, my beloved Wildwood is really taking a bad hit.  :( These are a few of the pictures.

Stay safe in your area.  :) My lights only went off a few times.  Hopefully we will all keep our power.  In the nearest neighboring town all the lights are off and even Kmart is closed because of power failures.

Steve,

I hope I am not the only one trying to make a Mack's pizza after today.  I am almost sure Mack's will rebuild if there is damage.  I saw today on channel 10 a video of North Wildwood and the water was on top of the boardwalk.  You know how long the beaches are at Wildwood and how high the boardwalk is.  I also saw in Altantic City Sandy wiped out a big part of the boarwalk there.

Bob,

There have been hurricanes before in Wildwood, but I don't know if this will be the worst one or not.  Wildwood is very flat and is an island surrounded by water on all sides.

I remember some big damaging storms along the Jersey shore when I was a kid in the '60s.

A little update about Wildwood if anyone is interested and a few pictures.

Tom reports from Wildwood a little while ago:

Took a walk around 9:45 this morn from 24th & Atlantic to 10th & the bay. A few trees down, lots of debris but for the most part structural damages seem to be very limited. Water damages might be another thing. Looks like we lucked out compared to the devestation in a lot of other communities, winds are still pretty strong.

Update from John Lynch:

The island is still drying out. Capt Jim Grauel checking out the low lying areas of the Wildwoods...

This is one photo right near Mackís pizza from Wildwood 365 on Facebook. 

Looking south on the Boardwalk, Monday afternoon. Courtesy of John Lynch

Mackís pizza is almost right across from the Douglas Fudge sign on the left side of the boardwalk.  I guess Mackís must have taken their Mackís pizza sign down and it appears they are okay. 

The other photo is also Courtesy of John Lynch on Wildwood 365.

The beach under water, Monday afternoon.

This album of different pictures were called Hurricane Sandy - "FrankenStorm 2012".  There are more pictures in the album. 

Effective 2 p.m., North Wildwood residents, property, and business owners are able to access the island via the North Wildwood Bridge.

A number of reports say that the Rio Grande Ave. bridge George Redding Bridge) are open to those who show proper ID, but we are waiting to confirm...

A few videos of Wildwood since hurricane Sandy, if anyone is interested.

Superstorm Sandy Update: Matador Oceanfrom Resort Motel

From a Motel owner how Wildwood did since hurricane Sandy.  North Wildwood is usually where I stay when visiting Wildwood.. 

   This video said Wildwood lost about 100 yards of beach from Sandy. 

Wildwood Crest



Middle of boardwalk



It seems like Wildwood fared much better than other Jersey Shore points.

Norma,

I have been reading media reports that some people have been engaging in dumpster diving looking for food. You might want to take a trip to Mack's and do some dumpster diving there. If you are stopped or questioned, you can put on a sad face and say that you are looking for food. You might want to dress appropriately for the occasion.

Peter,

I also have been reading media reports about some people engaging in dumpster diving looking for food. 

My daughter just said this morning she would like to visit Wildwood.  I saw on TV what problems people are having trying to get to the shore now though and said right now I am not interested.  I also saw on Mackís facebook page they arenít open now.  To go down to Mackís again and have the same parbaked pizza again sure isnít my cup of tea either. 

I wouldnít mind going dumpster diving again though and dressing poorly and looking sad sure wouldnít be any problem. :-D

I heard a Northeaster might be coming up though the shore area maybe this Tuesday or Wednesday.  Those poor people have been through enough.

Perhaps this shark had a hankering for a slice...

Hopefully, it doesn't have access to the internet, Norma, or it might try swimming up the Susquehanna looking for you.   :)
