from Skip Stiles of Wetlands Watch

Sunday morning around 4:30 or 5 am, we’ll get a high tide around 2 feet above normal spring tide. This will be the highest this fall – no big worries, but the usual wet roads in the southern Hampton Roads region. The high tides are due to the N/NE winds we are getting – full moon is not until Thurs, when we’ll have high tides at least one foot above the spring tide line.

In other words get your knee high boots out, park away from the water Sat night if you’re in a low lying area neighborhood. Should just be an annoyance Sun that will be gone by daylight.

Presumably, the purview of Wetlands Watch extends to our neighborhood during these episodes. ;-)

FYI, at the time Officer Medley posted this notice, his cellphone was kaput.  He can access voicemail but suggests email as the most appropriate means of contact for the moment.   Jacob.Medley@norfolk.gov

(Oct 8) Please be on the lookout for a white SUV (possibly a Toyota 4 runner or similar size) occupied by 2 or more young white males.  They are shooting car windows and individuals with an air soft or BB guns.  We had several incidents today. Call if you see this vehicle and describe as best you can the occupants inside and the vehicle itself especially tag if possible.   forwarded from
