I have a spare room and my bikes need the complete winter makeover. Just saying. You know...if your looking for something to do.Boy, today was a good day. I finished a project and now I have no work for several months! Yes, I planned it that way. I may take something on if I get a call, but I won't be looking for anything. I can get used to this semi-retirement.
So, for the remainder of the day, I did the oil changes on the bikes which I neglected to do when I put them to bed for the winter. And then I took the ST out for a ride. I can't ever remember riding in February before. It's always been too cold around here, but it was mid-fifties today. I love global warming!
I'm from Colorado so I had no idea how bad the sea rise had gotten but last year we visited the outer banks and in some neighborhoods near Carolina Beach the streets that had been closest to the water were actually now gone and houses are disappearing on a monthly basis. We saw people now living on the upper floors and desperately sandbagging as the waves lap at their back porches and houses at the end of the block disappear one by one, (they aren't underwater, they are removed as they become uninhabitable) fortunately most of these properties are vacation homes and not main residences. Whole entire blocks are now gone and covered by the ocean. Even the street we were driving down had massive puddles where the ocean was creeping ever inward and most of the waterside homes had sandbag fortifications. It's happening so slowly that it seems normal, I've never read or seen anything about it in the news.Me too. If you live near the ocean you don’t have to wash your feet or water the lawn anymore. In a couple of years I’ll be able to tie my boat to the porch.
I wouldn't worry about it..the Obamas just bought a mansion ($11.25M) on the ocean....if he ain't worried, neither am I.Me too. If you live near the ocean you don’t have to wash your feet or water the lawn anymore. In a couple of years I’ll be able to tie my boat to the porch.
Beach erosion is very real and happens all the time on the Gulf Coast. But it has nothing to do with the ice caps melting. The vast majority comes from hurricanes. There’s constant legal arguments going on all the time here every time a storm comes through and all of a sudden people that had homes on private property find they are now on public beaches because the water line has changed.
