Seiche Conditions on November 11, 2003


Winds had been blowing at 30-60mph all night from the west and gusting even higher, so when I got up I took a look at the shore and decided I had to take pictures. These were all taken between 7:30 and 8:30 AM. The water was 4-5 feet below the normal low water mark, but by 10:30 AM the water had already come back up about 2 feet. The early Miller Ferry didn't run. Waves last night were supposedly 13-17 feet. Islanders have seen the water this low before, but it usually takes 2-3 days. This time, it took about 12 hours.


Did the government really think they could get rid of the beach at the airport?

My dogs enjoyed the new beach
