Those are the pilings at a ramp I sometimes use on the southern branch of the Elizabeth River. The strong winds out of the northeast have pushed water from the Chesapeake Bay up the James River into the Elizabeth River bringing much higher than normal tides. The pier itself is about a foot underwater. But I like the way the snow looks on the pilings.
Standing there is was hard for me to imagine that in early March of last year I was launching Spartina for the first sail of the year and it was 70 degrees.
Okay, so there wasn't much wind that day. I didn't hear anybody complaining.

Right now I'm just hoping for a warm stretch of weather to get the painting and epoxy work done.
