A very unusual tide occurred up in Boothbay Harbor on Tuesday.
Evidently low tide became high tide within minutes. And this didn't happen once, it happened a few times. Like six or seven times.
Up, down, Up, down, Up, down, Up, down, Up, down, Up, down - within minutes.
And guess what? Apparently it's just a mystery of nature.
Which alternately freaks me out - it's like the start to a Steven King book - and then it also makes me feel reassured that we don't in fact know everything, because sometimes it feels like we think we do.
