I went to Middle Township yesterday. As I'm going down the parkway south, I notice during gaps in the woods, that the meadows on the east side of the parkway are swamped. Underwater. I suppose this was the large tide (or the second) they were speaking of. On my way back north, all those meadows of salt grass and what not were gray in color from this tremendous tide.

Also, this was 11 hours ago I think.

There was a flood warning in effect yesterday for parts of Atlantic County. Initially I found that strange since there was no rain, but when I read the whole thing, it said that some rivers/creeks were still above flood level as a result of all the rain last weekend. The warning I saw was for the Folsom area however and it expired at 4:00 PM.

We got out for a short trip. There’s a lot of water pooled up and slowly draining. There are puddles in areas that don’t normally have puddles and most have currents.

It’s a little late but it’s been a crazy week. Sunday we went out to see how the woods looked. We stopped at nearly every river crossing between Atco and Batsto. It was very wet.
First stop was the bridge at Goshen. Water was actually flowing around the bridge to the west.

Further downstream at the plastic bridge it was completely under water. Last week the water was about a foot below it

Down the Batsto at Quaker Bridge the entire flood plane was filled. And it was flowing through the cedars. Further down at one of the beaches we stopped.

Then at Constable Bridge the water was nearly up to the bridge.

Warm out there in the sun today, but a nice breeze was refreshing, especially in the shade. :) May get a little rain tomorrow night, looks like the severe weather will be North and West of the Pines. It is certainly not anywhere near drought conditions around my place, still very respectable creek levels and my lowlands have not fully dried up yet. Of course, that could change with an extended dry spell, but we aren't there yet.

Really windy here a little while ago and some spitting rain. Much cooler now.

Jes purchased a new weather station that we will install tomorrow. It will allow us to keep track of the rainfall and everything else by using an app. And it has wifi so we can check it anywhere. We are keeping the old one as well so she can have that one in her room. And we can compare the two to see how accurate they are.

Hammonton got hit pretty good with rain, but not a drop in Shamong.
