Nope. Home is under construction now and sits at 22-ft above SL.

Was just at the beach yesterday and the sand bar protecting the lagoon, had a breech about 100 metres wide -it's hard to imagine the seas can get that high to do that, but there has been an increase of ex tropical storms here in the last few years.

Just a thought.
Here are two pix taken of the same exact location. This is at Ocean Beach in San Francisco, CA (Pacific)

For all the yahoos that believe (and fear) that the oceans are rising) , first pic was taken over 100 years ago. Second pic was taken within the last few years. Looking closely you can see the big windmill that is very obvious in the first pic, at the end of the row of white colored condo apartments. The water line has not changed.

High winds can do that as well as high tides, storm activities, etc.

My office is on the waterfront, but I'll be retiring in 2-3 years. Our home is at 600' elevation about 25 miles inland, so flooding is not an issue.

I guess it's a good thing they weren't around in previous Inter-Glacial Periods, because the sea levels during those previous periods rose much higher than the current predicted rise.

Palaeo data suggest that Greenland must have been largely ice free during Marine Isotope Stage 11 (MIS-11). The globally averaged MIS-11 sea level is estimated to have reached between 6–13 m above that of today.

“Even though the warm Eemian period was a period when the oceans were four to eight meters higher than today, the ice sheet in northwest Greenland was only a few hundred meters lower than the current level, which indicates that the contribution from the Greenland ice sheet was less than half the total sea-level rise during that period,” says Dorthe Dahl-Jensen, Professor at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen, and leader of the NEEM-project.

tide erosion does more damage than climate issue every will. Its common to loose twenty feet of beach with every hurricane, you think i care about couple inches in 100 years.
