That’s a bit too close for comfort. Very widespread tornadic activity with the large system. Stay alert.
No sump pump. Just clean up with suck machine for rugs.
Power on again but internet is running really slow for whatever reason. It is sucky outside. Not a word really, but it fits the bill.
Ignore the sucky posts. Life is short. We love you here.
Well, we have two Baby Boomers and a teenager with a guitar, and we could all pile into our fallout shelter from the Cuban Missile Crisis. Does that work?
Reports of major #flooding around Norristown, Pa. Schuylkill River expected to reach major flood stage by Sunday evening.
You’re welcome. I think the images reveal that this is no walk in the park.
Any damage reports for Langhorne? Our alert for Ambler expired without undue excitement. Sometimes boredom is really good.
Thanks Gabz. I do have my tax bills to show I belong there (cable bill too lol). I do want to come down to assess whatever I can. Too old to start over there though.
SIL just got here.He said bottom street is a river and he came in the back way.He said a tree is down over the flooding at the bottom of the street.
Thanks. They are a tag team, occasionally running in a pack. Jackals.
Interesting stuff...I think the people on these LIVE threads(sometimes emergencies), get upset when the thread gets tied up with other topics.
Would definitely deserve it’s own thread, IMHO!
Other factors possibly influencing the number of evacutations:
= the amount of shoreline affected (consider all the waterfront between Eastern NC and Massachusetts).
= the population density in the areas affected (it doesn't get more dense than the Washington-NYC corridor).
= an increasing tendency for politicians and emergency agencies to order evacuations, compared with years ago (this ultra-careful age we live in).
Water just starting to come into the basement.
God can you please just leave.
