Anyone else concerned? Sucks being here and only be able to watch. Worried about the wife riding the storm out on her own.

Looks like Pennsylvania has been getting rained on hard for more than 24 hours now....
So far it is staying below the NYS line...

Buffalo Is playing Baltimore in their house so I guess I'll get a first hand look at the rain rate.

I was in NoVA for Isabel. This one looks very similar at this point, albeit weaker. As long as she is not sitting in a flat/low point, she shouldn't have a water problem. Wind (trees) and power are the other two concerns. I had my generator up and running for a day or so. Isabel blew through in a big hurry, which helped.

Best of luck to my southeastern friends


I just saw your home is in Gloucester. Can she get further inland somewhere?

We were planning on driving North this Friday to NH. We planned on spending Friday night in NC. I doubt we will be doing it. From the latest report the storm will sit over the area 2-3 days and drop massive amount of rain.

Wonder if that chick advertising for Progressive Ins. will be able to pay off for all the damage her storm caused......

Go with the Flo,.....I guess.....

I think she has...she's still on the fence about if she'd evacuate. We are on relatively high ground. Apparently when the house was built in 1787, they knew where to build.
