Probably no rowing for a week or more in New Jersey

Irene is “past” although actually we are getting stronger wind gusts on the tail end than we got during the storm (50+ mph). 

The Passaic River is forecast to reach record flood levels, but that usually takes 2-3 days to happen.  Judging from these pics we won’t be getting on the water anytime soon.


Passaic River Rowing Association docks, North Arlington, NJ:



PRRA boat bays post-flood mess (that’s my boat second from the top on left):



Nereid Boat Club upriver in Rutherford, NJ – they are on a narrow bend and get bad flooding when the tide is high.  To give perspective, this is taken from across the street and up the hill from the boathouse – the normal course of the river is BEHIND the boathouse!



Everybody stay safe!
