Drove through, well almost through, Yorktown around 5p this afternoon, and the water was covering the road from in front of the Post-Office to up under the Coleman bridge. VDOT cars were blocking the road.

The water was coming over the little pier down there, and only about a foot of each of the jetties was visible and no sand walkways connecting the beach to the jetties, they were all under a ton of surf and foam.

It was the roughest and highest I've seen it down there in a long time.

I noticed the same thing coming into town tonight. When I came by Willoughby, the water was hitting the crossbars under the bridge and the jetty was completely submerged--you couldn't see a thing.

Figures that I'd come into town when fishing is shot to you know what...

So who's up for beers tomorrow? :D

Water temps still a little low, so maybe fishing won't interfere with the beer drinking! I'm in for one of those days at the Spit.
