Where's everyone else?
Just because "no man is an island", doesn't mean that a boat can't be one.

Wow that water level appears very high, judging by the homes in the background.

The township has the funding to "raise the road" or whatever fix they have intended. From what I hear there are some neighbors down the street that don't get flooded that are resisting because they feel they will be the low lying goats once this road is raised. They could be right. I live 2 blocks away and might be on the receiving end of the "fix" as well. The water was in my street today but not very deep. My side of the lagoon is only a few inches above sea level. the other side is 18" above and they don't see any spill over.

There's a boat in on the other side. The reason is this is New Jersey, where you can't carry a firearm and we get 2 months of March.

Aren't you guys getting killed with flood insurance rates at that elevation? I had to raise my place in Tuckerton to stop the flood insurance rates from going sky hi. They where $1000 a year in 2012, went up to $6000 last year. Now they are $500 after raising. Looks like you would be seriously underwater in a hurricane.

It looks like you need to be a tight rope walker to get down that dock, how do you get anything to the boat?

We were hit with 1.5' of water during Sandy. The only reason Barnegat Bay was so high yesterday (I hope) was a combination of a hell of a lot of rain, high tide, and a westerly wind. Usually don't see it that high. I have a webcam in the window so we can check it out when we aren't there. Will have to raise at some point.

Lake Michigan and connected lakes are very high too. Might go down with summer, but after 45 years on this lake, I know it can go higher. We are within a foot of the tops of our harbor walls, and lots of docks are close to the water. My marina still has holes in the pilings from when the docks were raised decades ago. They are reluctant to spend the money to raise them again, but no doing so will get expensive as waves are tearing boards off. I'm moving to a bigger slip when I launch Monday, with a higher dock.
