water rising

We’ve had almost nightly storms and the park is showing signs. The water level has risen so much in the last couple days and is scheduled to keep rising. I like it, it makes everything feel bigger and more dramatic. i don’t have many before pictures because i never thought of having to prove how much it changed but here are a couple markers i’ve been using. The tree that we dock our boat on the shore is usually 15 feet from the shore and is now right on the edge. The pier usually has a 6-8ft clearance under neath but is now almost at water level. The first question i get when talking about raising water levels is the fear of the island being anchored down and pulled under water, fear not! there is enough slack in the line that we haven’t come close to going down. That is possible, but i think if we get that much water, a submerged island is not going to be our biggest worry.
