Aberdeen MD showing strengthening gusts. House is rumbling a bit. Still have power. Lots of rain.
I am your neighbor across the river. We still have power, but some friends just lost theirs.
Allegedly I’m sitting in the eye of this thing.
It’s very rainy and very windy but honestly folk, I’ve been through way worse.
Elec flickers from time to time but our electric is pretty good here in the swamps of Delaware, bout 17 miles from Cape May NJ, which is the alleged landfall spot.
Biggest thing gonna come from this storm is ENORMOUS flooding. so far the winds have been way calmer than expected, it’s moving faster than expected. But the storm surge is enormous.
BUT....the only places flooding are places that have flooded before or near where there’s been floods before. Water might rise higher but even the might of Sandy won’t suddenly drop a new lake in the middle of Nevada.
They got a Fox guy here in Rehoboth Del. He’s showing the big holes in the sand caused by the rampant waves and yeah, they’re big.
But every dag year Rehoboth’s filling in them holes; heck a little Nor’easter blows that beach apart. They got little Peter Doocy all at Rehoboth and seriously, that’s a beach nature wants to reclaim.
So far, ah....so good here in the eye of the ‘cane.
