As I put this together it is snowing and we are under a coastal flood advisory for tidal departures of 2.5 to 3.5 feet above high tide tonight.
You would have never have known it if you saw the water this morning on the shore of Carmans River at the east end of the Great South Bay.
I went to check my boat this morning before work around 9:00 a.m. to make sure the everything was squared away before the storm and was surprised to see most of the boats in my marina were high and dry. Although low tide wasn’t due for another two hours, most of the boats were stuck in the mud or leaning at odd angles. I have kept my boat at Squassux Landing for 18 years and have never seen it so low. I took a short drone flight that shows how narrow the channels are. You can even see crab or eel traps sitting out of the water that are never exposed.
