Sea Level Rise?

For Ted’s birthday party yesterday, we tried to take a bunch of 2nd graders to the North Beach — out past six pipes. We never made it.  Road to six pipes blocked by water At 2 p.m., a couple hours after low tide, the road north was covered with 6 to 8 inches of water just before the submarine tower. The turn off to myrtle dock looked washed out from the tidal flow 8 hours before.

The road has always been low just before the submarine tower, but it feels like it’s been covered with water much more this year than in the past and on days without exceptional high high tides. Perhaps we’re seeing the local evidence of sea level rise.

We took the kids to Ancient Dunes instead and Ted had a great party.
