KNOTTS ISLAND BAY
Comment: Gary Montalbine - Our front yard at 7AM on August 28, 2011. This is the highest water level I have seen since moving here in 1989.
This is the lowest that I have seen since 1989. It occurred April
17, 2005 after a long Nor'easter. At one time that may have been
the original Bay.
November 22, 2012. From Jimmy Cason - I took this picture
in 1999, note the date in the lower right corner. I took it east
of Garys house in Knotts Island Bay looking toward Swan Island. I
don't recall the name of the storm, it may just have been a
Noreaster. I remember that the wind had been N/NE at 30-40 MPH for
3 or 4 days. My brother Wayne & I decided to go out and look
for artifacts. My Dad was at Brumley Landing as we were leaving...
dragging the boat behind on the dry sand. He looked at us and
said; "I always said you two were crazy, now I know you are".
