Stormy Weather - Part II



Here's the boathouse at this morning's high tide.

The rain has stopped so I was able to get out and survey the goings on. In the previous post I mentioned a pot of gill nets. Notice it's been swallowed up by the tide. Also, in the background on the right you'll see our neighbor's boat floating over the top of the dock, just about over the dock poles.

I'll post some more pics later today or tomorrow. For now, the wind and rain have died down, but the tide is still up in the yard.

Time to go cook a pot roast.

I can pretty much tell you that neither CBW nor i am expecting. But that water! Wow. Did Gustav escape again? And, are you going to have some wine with that pot roast? if I left right now, I could probably be there by, say, 7.....

OH my!!! That is some serious water... Hope it subsides soon ! If you need anything, just come on up :)

I hope you stocked up on wine...

Caution Flag said...

Ignore the advice they're all giving you. I know exactly what you need to do. Come to Michigan for the week-end. And bring the roast.

Word Veri: sumsin

You know sumsin is wrong when CBW has made fourteen dinners in two days;)

P.S. AM has wine. She stocked up at Target Monday.

Well, at least it's only the boathouse under water? And that you still have current. Or, as we put it, The 'Lettric.

We are dry and FREEZING. And our power company informed us, via a recorded phone message, that we will have no power from 7am to 6pm both tomorrow and Sunday. How kind of them. Cold, much?

Now have to google 'succotash'. I hope it tastes better than it sounds?

Hope the tide doesn't rise any more! Take care.

Boy or boy.....we have been worried about you and all the folks there in Mathews! Crusty is the only one salivating over the abundance of water, but you know he's weird anyway.

Stay safe my friend.

Tile. Your house needs tile throughout.

I'll raise a glass to all of you tonight, but for now? I'm on my lunch break and that would not sit well.
