East coast readers: what's happening where you live? Has the storm arrived?
Here in northern Vermont, as of 10:30 a.m. Monday, we haven't had any rain yet.
Strong northern winds and rainless
Tuesday AM, flat waters, and calm winds the sun slightly breaking out, warm still. No power or tree issues found.
Bit windy in Glosta, little rain
Windy but only light rain here in Portland, gusts up to 40mph.
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)
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.
