Will Our Houses Be Underwater?

It's been about a year since I posted a blog wondering whether it wasn't time for homeowners to start checking out possible rises in sea level before buying a house near the coast -- and I still haven't found a website that lets you figure out how high the water is predicted to rise in local areas.

But wait, it looks like scientists may be changing the way they calculate rising amounts anyway.  In fact, they're saying some areas may experience higher rises than others (watch out Washington, DC). Find out more here.

Too bad it's not freshwater levels that are rising -- my plants are suffering in this California drought.
