Last week it rained and rained and rained and the wind blew and blew and blew and white caps came all the way up the river. That big ole front even pushed the tide as high as ever and it stayed for 48 hours before we went back to what we know as low tide. Some docks went under and owners had to make sure that boats were tied solid! You did not want to find your boat on top of your dock a day later, or in even worse events some boats just disappeared!
Those who owned canoes and kayaks and floats took everything all the way to their back doors. This week boaters will have to be careful about the flotsam that is across the waters. We checked with neighbors on the more open side facing the actual Bay and they did somewhat worse. Strange weather for fall, but with climate change this is the new normal.
It was perfect weather for ducks...or maybe geese? Now let us open the door today and see what gift awaits us. As always, the sun eventually breaks through and we realize that we have been spared to plod through another day.
