King tides are sort of a look into the near future as sea levels rise. Combine closeness to the moon, rainy weather, wind and near-hurricane conditions and we get floods. Each year the tides get more severe along with the flooding and traffic becomes completely hazardous as our streets aren't ready for the water that quickly becomes curb high--where there are curbs!
I love Mother Nature--especially when I am inside and dry!--even when she gets a little nasty like today (and the next couple of days!) yet combines everything to make the area surrounding us look so different.
And, yes, the snowy egrets are back for their snacks!
