I don't live near the coast... but some may find this "Wind Map" interesting
It shows wind direction and speed in almost "real time" (short time delay)

John,
Very cool map -- thanks for the link.

The low-pressure hurricane is like a huge black hole, sucking air towards its center.

Lots of wind, not too much rain in the north-Boston-burbs. Newly-built
drainage pits for downspouts apparently working well in the few heavy
rain bands that came through, so they're getting their big first test today.

Central NC - happy to say we dodged the bullet for once. Last night blowy, chilly rain. This a.m. cold and breezy, overcast, no limbs down or power lost that I can tell. Not like any hurricane I've experienced here before, even a peripheral hit like yesterday's generally leaves us balmy, moist, swamped in debris.

Northern Vermont seems relatively OK as well. No rain this morning, and the winds have died down. I put my chainsaw in my truck and drove the two miles of our dirt road down to the nearest paved road, but we didn't have a single tree blocking the road.
