Midday High Tide, Friday
Hmm are they actually going to close the barrier?
It was high, but not unusually so.
Yes but midnight is when the main surge is actually expected. Just curious if the barrier will be used to protect anyone from high tides. If anyone needs anywhere dry later on I'll be up the hill. :-)
Great pictures, what time is high tide tonight?
Well, these 'high tides' were really nothing out of the ordinary, perhaps because of the very strong westerly winds. Very good news for all those threatened by the proposed 'surge', but less than spectacular for those who came expecting to see the marshes flooded once more.
