High tide? Whaaa?

Having driven through eight inches of seawater on my way to and from work for the past two days, I'm glad to hear that Belle Island Blog is posting "high tide warnings" from the City of Miami Beach telling us that high tide will cause flooding around 10:00 a.m. tomorrow.


Thanks, City of Miami Beach Department of Already-Known-Information.

Ugh. We all know. We know it's going to be floody and crappy for the next two days. We've already figured it out, because we have to drive through it, and then get our cars washed at least once a day.

Boo-urns. Didn't we just get high, high tides in June?

For all the people who don't believe in Global Warming and rising sea levels... um... move to Miami Beach.

It didn't used to flood like this, this extensively, this often.

And to the City of Miami Beach - WHATEVER YOU'RE DOING, ISN'T WORKING. FIX THIS.

To all the Carwash Owners of Miami and Miami Beach - enjoy your bonanza days.

And to the Moon: Screw you.

OMG - I just discovered the same advisory on Belle Isle Blog this a.m. The perceptive powers of Captain Obvious of the Venetian are incredible, indeed. Don't even get me started on the flooded parking lot that was Alton Road on Wednesday a.m., or my treacherous walk home from Lincoln Road last night. And, now that it's finally cool enough to open my windows, I'm confronted with the enticing aroma of overflowing storm sewers flooding my street.

Also: it's not like tides are some magical force that no one understands. There are charts on the interwebs stating when high tide is coming -- so why doesn't the City of MB plan accordingly? What are my obscenely high property taxes paying for, anyway? I know it's not going to snowplows and salt, or education. Ok, I'm done now.

Looking at the same sea walls for 30 years so i can safely say the tides are higher... and the sky is falling.
