That is not good at all!!! I hope that they put up some sort of barrier now that they see this can happen. Good thing the controls aren't below the ride on this one, huh?;)

Whoa. And what is that that looks like snow? Just really foamy water or what?

If the shoe fits, find another one.

Ahk, looks like there is ice on the other cam. Perhaps that is snow on the ground?

No, it snowed a lot today so that is snow and not water. There was a winter storm warning for almost all of northen Ohio with warnings of 1-2" of snow an hour. So, that area is not flooded, just looks like it.

I can't think of a good signature.

We have wicked snow in the Area and lots of it, it is a blizzard in NW Ohio. High winds and plenty of snow 5-8 inches. Lots of blowing and drifting, the roads are nearly impassable.

Does CCI know how to make a bad coaster?

Flooding in that area is fairly common. Remember a few years or so back the boardwalk between Sandcastle and Breakers was washed out? You can bet the footers go down far enough that the flooding won't be an issue.

It just isn't much fun scooping up all the sand and putting it back out on the beach.

There is no water. Just snow. No cause for alarm.

I should mention that Magnum has been sitting as close, if not closer, to the water for a decade.

What keeps the water from reaching Magnum or Wicked Twister?

Jephry, The reason is Lake Erie doesnt have tides like the oceans. So the water level usually stays around the same area. If im wrong, im sorry :)

I have Spring Break this week and I'm one of the lucky ones who didn't go down to Florida and not miss this beautiful weather up here in Indiana.

You can hear the laughter, you can hear the mighty roar. From the brickyard down in Indy to the white Chicago shore. It's a rollin', twistin', turnin' and might we both suggest. You get you fanny ridin' on the Cornball Express!

Yes Steve that is correct, but 'da lake' can get some pretty fierce waves on it at times....remember when 'da lake' tried to eat a piece of track not too long ago...those waves can get pretty far up on the beach if the conditions are right, but I don't think flooding would ever be too much of a prob.

If you guys look on the cam today, it looks as if it's a little trashy at the moment.

Speaking of the webcam, does anyone remember a few months back with the spider?

Well, Lake Erie does have tides, just really small ones. On the order of an inch or so.

Wolf is correct. The worst case scenario is a stong wind out of the North. That can push the lake water towards Ohio and you will see an amazing amount of water along the shores near Cedar Point, in the bay, and even up around TGIFridays on Cleveland Road.

Hay bales are put up along the walkway down near Sandcastle in the winter to help prevent the water from coming over and towards the pool.

It isn't uncommon for the A-Frames and Condos along the beginning of the causeway to get flooded. Usually, off season employees are put on the second and third floors of the Bayside Apartments to avoid the flooding issue.
