heavy winds

Post by PietFrancke » Sat Mar 03, 2018 12:58 am

heavy winds pushed water through the marsh until it reached our house. A tree fell into a fence and a garage window blew out. I am happy with this...

the water went back to the sea

so we drove to Guard Shore

earlier Guard Shore breached and was under water - the last strip of land is where I stood for the low tide shot.

The wind still rages and it will push the water back one more time tonight

thanks Frank - the sound and the motion of the house is nerve wracking. The only thing so far (besides plumbers that charge too much) that I don't like about this area! The images all fail in that they don't show that invisible and powerful and roaring wind...

Brutal. Gorgeous.

For your consideration:

wind, wave, surge at door
raw power moving at will
who is first to leave

The power of the sea, and any weather, is pretty amazing and overwhelming when you come face to face with it. Well captured, all of them. The final one is my favorite, I like the rhythmic march of the insistent water, and the conversion color palette.

Spent yesterday dealing with a tree that fell onto my house in high winds here two days ago, while I was out of the country, so I understand why you were pleased to have no more damage than you did. Our damage was only $1200 worth so I dodged a bullet too. Could have been far far worse.
