A Nearly Biblical Rain Last Night

The remains of Hurricane Ida.  They came into our neighborhood, strangely, on an east wind, not south or southwesterly.  Does that imply some residual strong rotation?

My poor little emerald green skiff will be full to the gunwales with water that was scooped up last week in the Gulf of Mexico, east of the Yucatan, only to be deposited in a river that runs into the Gulf of Maine.  Lately the currents in the river have run, I'm told, to seven knots, which seems possible only if the astronomical high tides got a boost from the overflowing river runoff.

Who said "The Fire Next Time?"
