It is the Nor'easter's fault!
Yes, that's right, there is a historical Nor'easter hitting the Hampton Roads area where I currently live. The tides are at 6+ feet high and are expected to rise to a high tide of 7.5 feet by this evening which is close to what it was like during Hurricane Isabelle. There is tidal flooding and roads, bridges and tunnels are closed. This means that schools are closing all over the place. Now, there is no flooding in Williamsburg, but a whole lot of rain and wind. Williamsburg/James City County Schools are still in session today, but I work for York County School Division and some of our schools are closer to where all the flood action is, so they have closed our district for today. What a nice surprise for first thing in the morning!!
