All of you folks in the mid Atlantic and Northeast are getting it pretty bad right now. Let us know you are OK when you can.

Stay safe

Thanx Greg, I'm ok. 40 miles North west of Boston.

Moderate steady 'breezes' right now. Drained about 5" off the pool last night and already about 3" have been replaced.
Still about 5 hrs to go.

Bob in Oradell NJ (exit 165 off the Garden State Parkway, that's how people in NJ indicate their locations). Never lost power, about 9 inches of rain, no real damage. Ground is saturated, hopefully no trailing gusts take any trees down...

Just rain and mild winds. About 80 miles WNW inland from Boston. About 4 inches so far.

OK, check-in from Exit 89. Nice to have access again! Had to 'leave' for Sat & Sun AM. Preped the house before leaving. No damages from wind or water. Lagoons are high (top of bulkheads). Beachfronts took a beating, radio reports seem like minimal property danages.

Major flooding conditions on GSP at 136 (from a brook!), and 98 to 91 are still closed. My power is on, although the radio says 230k+ are dark statewide. Light rain and gusty 'back-end' wind right now (1700 Sun)

Based on what I have seen & heard.....We are LUCKY!!

Still here, (central Long Island) - my power never went out, but no telephone or internet access since 4:30am sunday. I'm up at local Starbucks parking lot using Optimum WiFi.

Most around here have no power, a lot of trees down in the area, including 2 at my house, but no damage done there.
