Mad River update

For what it’s worth...

Today I spoke to a woman who lives on the banks of the Mad River close to where I witnessed the incoming wave. (See previous post “Mad River weirdness.”)

I told her about what I had seen and asked if it was unusual, or just a regular incoming tide.

She said that what is unusual is the size of the incoming waves. As the tide rises, it’s common to have waves enter the river and move upstream. But they’re usually small, measuring about six inches or less.

The recent waves are large and, she said, something she hasn’t seen before.

By the way, if you want to view aerial photos of river erosion, visit:
