We live in a house overlooking a salt water river. We overlook a cove. The river feeds into Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island. In the 17 years we have lived here, the river has frozen several times.
In early January of this year there were record breaking low temps which were below zero in our area. The river froze solid for a couple weeks. A couple of days ago we had record breaking WARM temps with steady rainfall. The morning after the rain storm we noticed that the bottom of the river was exposed but no water flow.
This is alarming to me because we've never seen anything like this to this extent where it has stayed without the river flowing into the cove for several days. I searched the web and found this site. Hoping someone can come up with an answer! Thank you.
