That November Full Moon ~ always bringing in the highest tides! Incredible how some areas seem to fill with all that surge... and others do not. Below is the launch at the Parker River Wildlife Refuge, just inside the gate. It's usually dry all the way to those two poles you see in the center. But yesterday, the water came right up to the road.
Many people are questioning recent statements by Fish and Widlife, who say this property floods as if it happens all the time or is a reason not to save the house and restore it. The The Pink House is in the AE FEMA Flood Zone, as are most of the homes around here and much of the Refuge. That same flood zone comes right up to the edge of the Refuge Visitor Center on the corner of Rolfe's Lane.
These photos were shot on the same day and time and the one of The Pink House below, clearly showing it's property as dry.
Many drove out to see it for themselves. Below is a another person that posted virtually the same angle of The Pink House on the same day.
The below shows The Pink House's comparatively higher ground all around the parcel during a regular high tide. By the way, what does it matter to FWS - or anyone - if there would soon be a new owner of house? We don't hear any talk about the homes across the way.
