Thankfully, Winter Storm Jonas has come and gone!  We are happy to report that the community sustained minimal damages!  Our team has been busy working with our contractors to get everything returned to normal as quickly as possible.

A Note from our Community Manager: Tara Laing

Complete Tree Care and Arbor Care have been onsite cutting down trees that broke and cutting up wood from trees that fell. Sposato Landscape has staked any trees that were uprooted that we think can be saved.  Arbor Care has also inspected the Nature Trail and has found one bridge that needs to be rebuilt.  Lastly, we have some repairs to make at the Bay Beach kayak launch, which will be scheduled soon.

We also checked on as many homes as we could and have contacted homeowners to let them know if we found any issues.  Most of these issues were siding, fascia and/or roof shingles that have blown off.  If you find any wind damage to your home, please let us know immediately.  While there hasn't been enough damage to file claims with the Associations' carriers, we have been assisting individual homeowners with vendor referrals to take care of their repairs.  You should also file a claim with your HO6 carrier right away.  Thanks to our Maintenance Tech, Greg, we have made every effort to return patio furniture and trash cans to their rightful owners.  If you are missing any items, please check with your neighbors. 

We have seen the photos and videos from areas harder hit than us, from the beaches to the record breaking snowfall in Baltimore.  We hope that you fared as well as we did here at The Peninsula.  If there is anything we can do you, please do not hesitate to call us at (302) 947-2036.  We will be happy to assist you.

A Note from Andy Ninnemann-Golf Course Superintendent

January has been a wet month here on the course even before the most recent storm. On 8 out of the last 30 days we have had a total of 3.1 inches of rain and 9 inches of snow. Extended periods of freezing temperatures during this time have slowed the drainage and drying process considerably. Last weekends storm, with high winds and coastal flooding, left the course covered in debris as well. Although the weather is improving it will take some time for conditions to improve enough to where we can get equipment out on the course to do thorough cleanup. We have started clearing cart paths, picking up limbs, and getting debris out of bunkers but this will be a slow process. There is going to be another hard freeze the next couple of nights so that will make the course unavailable in the morning hours. As soon as the greens thaw, the snow drifts in the bunkers and the cart paths are clear we will open for walkers or cart path only. Based on the forecast, I think we will be able to take some tee times starting late in the afternoons on Thursday and Friday although course conditions will still be less than ideal. We will not be able to issue handicap flags until sometime next week and the driving range will remain closed until Monday due to balls plugging in the turf as well as damage that would be caused by the ball picker.
