King tides January 21 to 24

The highest tides of the winter. Many people's property are threatened when these high tides are combined with the low pressure and the wind-driven waves of a storm. But some people get damage from the tide alone. They should be making plans to correct their situation.

Our waterfront property doesn't have this problem - with or without a storm. At least the cabin doesn't. We have had minor erosion behind our bulkhead in past storms.

Look at water in yards, parks and over roadways; the latter in La Connor and Port Orchard. On January 22 most of the photos were dates 1/21/11 or 1/22/11. Someone has named the highest tides of the year "king tides."

P.S. I got a very good view of a mature bald eagle at sunrise in Lake Forest Park this morning. He landed high in a cottonwood tree half a block from Bothell Way NE aka Highway 522.
