In Charlestown, you can drive your Chevy to the levee, but the levee won't be dry

Alex E. Weaver reports from Charlestown:

Levy break in Charlestown. Never seen the water this high.

Grand Ten Irish Whiskey is the worst Irish Whiskey I ever tasted. And I drink a lot of Irish Whiskey.

Levy? It's the moon

Levy, there is no stinkin levy! It's a blood moon, blue moon, full moon & lunar eclipse all at the same time giving us a 12 foot tide (vs 10 foot normal). On January 4th Boston had a record breaking 15 foot tide due to the "cyclonic storm" surge! (that would've been a great time to take a picture at that spot!)

Thank you!

And it's a "levee" anyway. A "levy" is a tax.

Although the Marx Bros. did a great levy joke (in "The Cocoanuts," I believe), no, I just blew it, was not trying to be funny, have no inside joke. Fixed.

The levee did not break

It is still there. It is just fine.

It just overtopped a bit.
