It’s High Time…er…Tide

With the impending full moon tonight, today’s 3 inches of rain and a storm surge, we experienced the highest tide since buying our property.  As you can see in the above picture, our marsh completely filled with water and was just a few feet below the level of the road.  It was so high that for the first time, water flowed back through the culvert in the driveway and into our pond.  Of course there are no worries with flooding at our homesite as it is about 120 feet up the hill.  The new year is starting out to be quite stormy but we still hope to have some clear weather later in January so that we can spray the concrete shell.4 comments

Thanks for the nice comment. Once the weather improves, the blog will probably get a little more interesting as we document more of the changes. Over the past month or so, the weather’s been so foul.
