Unhappy Storm/Flood Surge, Hows it looking?

Stuck here at home in Rockville sopping up some water in the basement wondering how the boat is doing? I was down this morning around 10:00 and the water was just under the pier, I'm guessing tonights and tomorrows high tide will be even worse. I hope my lines are slack enough. Can anyone share any info., hows it looking around you?

A friend whose keeps his boat at PSA said one of their boats broke free from a mooring today, damage was not extensive fortunately. Rock Creek looked like a muddy river this morning.

I'm on the boat now. We have an extra 4-5' of water, just up to the docks, but not over. Tide should be falling now, but it pouring cats & dogs so who knows whats going to happen later.

Good thing is the winds here are 0-5, as I was expecting much more.

I'm aboard on Weems Creek, the water has been high for the last 12 hrs and just keeps getting higher. Clearance under the swing bridge couldn't be more than 10 feet and it's pouring. Happy the wind is low and no more tornado watches. Nice and dry below, continually checking lines, wondering if the water is going to reach the top of the pilings. Doubt it, but hope the rains let up. Saw so far we've gotten 7.5 inches of rain.

This is interesting chart that I don't fully understand but it looks like water is peaking about now. ???

Nastier

0026 ~ West Annapolis ~ In sheltered Weems Creek, it's suddenly gotten nastier, now blowing 10 to 11, with gusts to 13 and 14, waters keep rising and boats rocking and it's COLD. Dock lines stretching... ugh...

Water was just up to the bottom of the dock beams this afternoon at low tide in my marina on Back Creek Annapolis. At high tide tonight it was only three inches higher than that. Parts of the bulkhead are underwater and we already had to rescue one of the floating dinghy docks that came off the risers.

A couple of boats have lines too tight and being held down a bit -- owners tied off to cleats that are now two feet under water on that part of the docks - I'm not going in after them and neither is the dockmaster. *grin* Had a few impromptu gatherings out in the rain among the dockwalkers. Quite a number of people spending the night on the boats.

The important thing is that except for one dock all the power is at least a foot above the water so the heat pumps are running, the TV works, and I don't have to worry about charging. The rain is still coming down so hard my wifi is a little flaky. Such a trial!

Very cool graph Suky - nice find.

0430 - water is down at least a foot from the peak. Wind is down a lot to about nothing. Even the rain has started to fade.

A good reason for terminating docklines on-board if you've got fixed docks.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Terminating lines onboard if you're aboard ?
I inherited my docklines. My situation is slip between a floating dock and pilings. I think I may like to replace the bow and stern lines with ones without as much stretch ~ too much for my taste, and I need chafe protection. I like the idea of rubber tubing the same size as the line, but can't quite get how to then attach them to the line ~ especially neatly.

very quiet here in Weems Creek. just a light drizzle, and water down 4 feet. I didn't get much sleep but everything is well intact. I was supposed to resume varnishing today, but best to let things dry out.
