We saw a chunk of log floating vertically with just the pointed tip showing in the lower Potomac off the Coan River . We thought that it was a crab pot until we got close. It was suspicious because there were no other pots around.
The weekend of the 18th was a lot worse on the lower end of Cayuga from all the rains and flooding, but still had remnants like this last weekend. Decided from then on, that if I saw a bird STANDING on the water, it was probably a sign to veer off. (there were other smaller chunks too).
Can't wait for it to have settled down. Careful out there!
Until three weeks ago, there was 50 acres of flotsam above Conowingo Dam at the lower end of the Susquehanna River. When the opened the flood gates two weeks ago, the size of the floating log jam was less than 5 acres. Everything you see in the bay's upper reaches, 55-gallon drums, picnic tables, benches, logs the size of telephone polls, it all came over Conowingo Dam in the last few weeks. Yep, it's against the law to dump this stuff over the dam, but no one enforces that law so they just keep dumping it over the spillways.
