More storm & king tide snaps

There is nothing worse than a wet seat Readers have been sending us more and more great storm and king tide shots with the Picnic Bay Jetty proving the most popular site. But a water-bound public seat at Geoffrey Bay seems to say it all and makes for a scary vision for future rising sea levels.

A storm is a storm whether its water or snow ! I am sitting
in cold (3o below C ) snowy Ottawa Canada wondering just how many layers of clothing will be needed to venture outdoors today . The view from my frost painted windows is one of snow covered branches and red cheeked children trudging off to school. My friend from Australia sent me the views from your windows . Wow what waves and wild water!
Sometimes Mother Nature just isn't kind !
