Been boating on the Chesapeake Bay since 1970 and with the exception of Hurricane Isabel, I have never seen more floating debris than I did yesterday. Due to the unrelenting rains in the upper Susquehanna Valley, the Conowingo Dam Authority had 12 flood gates open for an extended period and by early afternoon you could almost walk from Sparrows Point to Rockhall without getting your feet wet. Uprooted trees up to 2' in diameter with some over 30' long. The organic stuff I can almost understand as the river's coastline extends through Pennsylvania, and into upper New Your State, but the car fuel tank, refrigerator, plastic 55 gallon drums, and the like you have to believe are the result of irresponsible waterfront property owners. If you are out there today, keep your eyes open. W
