so far the electric just went off and came back on 1 time. I went down in the cellar to check the sump pump and it was laying over keeping it running even though it wasnt pumping much. Im glad I seen it and it didnt burn up. So far we have about 4-5in of rain, we put the new rainspouting up and they are working very well!! AS far as damage goes its not to bad hear yet, just some small branches and lots of leaves. I drove my mom to work this morning and it wasnt bad just some leaves and small branches nothing really too bad in the 3 miles I drove.

Hopefully the worst is over for you there in Pa. We are just expecting moderate winds and heavy rain. Nothing much yet up here.

I just looked at the member map to get an idea of all who have/will be affected. Some we may not hear from for a while due to power outages. Good luck to all having to deal with this storm!
Brad, glad to hear you are doing okay.
Brian, from what the weather channel is saying, the worst will be west of you. Good luck!

Thanks Kenny. I think we will be fine here. In Sept. 2003 Juan came right up Halifax harbour and kicked us real bad. Power was out here for 5 days. Since then everyone pays a lot more attention to the warnings.

I haven't watched the weather lately and don't know it's current position. We started getting higher winds and rain yesterday evening and must have gotten the majority of it overnight. Our power must have flickered and that was it. Clocks were blinking 12:00 but the pc and server were still running. It is still windy outside right now and it is still raining. We are going to have to pump the pool out a little bit, only about another inch till she is full.

Lot's of trees and wires down around here. Nothing real major though. We only lost power for about an hour according to the electric clock, and grandfather clock. We are scheduled to go to Ocean City, Maryland in the morning for a three day vacation, so I hope everything will be ok in that area. Here at home, I think we dodged a big bullet. I saw numerous Tornado Warnings posted on the dopler around midnight last night, and was debating if I wanted to go to bed.

Glad to see that most of us got through it without major damage. Everyone take care!
