Very High Tides this Weekend

Today’s Times newspaper reports that coastal towns are on flood alert this weekend as the highest tides in 20 years threaten Britain’s shores.

The Environment Agency has identified a three-day period from today until Monday evening when high astronomical tides are likely because of the gravitational pull of the Sun and the Moon.

Oh bugger - means more 'lunies' on the road!

I thought the lunies had to be kept on the path. Interesting seeing a light swell on the northside yesterday put spray over the promenade and less space on Viking Bay today. As long as we do not get a NE blow, the period should pass without the problems we encountered in 1977?
