3rd flood

November 17, 2008
Saturday November 15 was the third worst flood seen on Money Island in the past few decades. The worst was Octobwer 2006 and the 2nd worst was Mother’s Day this year. The trend is disturbing. No one seems to know why. It was not severe weather in any of thse three events. Upstream flooding was not an issue. My boardwalk floated away because I has not anchored it yet after the recent install. (See Harley on one piece o the front yard as it started to drift. I found the wood in the creek a hundred and fifty yards away). The second picture show the side yard and the main road, completely underwater. We had almost a sand drift almost three feet deeep on the road in front of the cabin where the barrier broke in the third picture. Chuck dug it out with a backhoe. Note the "Inn of the Seagulls" in the thir picture amazingly remains standing despite all odds.
