I am on the VA/NC border. We have had 3 days of steady, but not heavy rain. The winds have not been bad 20 miles inland, but the coast is taking a beating even now. The Avon Pier is falling into the ocean. We have a lot of roads experiencing periodic closures due to tidal flooding, and the usual areas are currently flooded. We are expecting higher winds this afternoon, but nothing over 50 mph. That being said, our ground is saturated, so downed trees are a distinct possiblity. Overall, I feel like we dodged another bullet here for the most part. Hang on tight those of you taking a direct hit. Do let us know how you fare...

Jamie, that is a really good idea. If they are anything like mine, they hate getting wet while going.

Stay safe.

What's funny is that Holly hates the rain but loves the mud. Most of them will potty in the rain, it was more for our sanity of not having to let them out one at a time and wipe them all off several times a day.

We are 45 min inland from Atlantic City and at a higher elevation so not concerned with flooding. I am concerned with the winds and all of the trees surrounding the house. We haven't had it so bad here yet, raining off and on and the wind occasionally gusts pretty good but nothing to worry about yet.

Here is the local news for anyone interested

Might I suggest for those who expect to lose power. I live in the country and I'm on a septic system & well. No electricity means no water. Be sure to fill up your tub with water. And have a bucket in the bathroom. That way whey you lose the ability to flush, you can dump the bucket (full of water) in to the tank (behind the toilet) and you'll be able to flush once.

If you expect to lose power, go get cash now while you can. And fill up your tank with gas.

We've got heavy rain here and it's cold but it's not too windy yet. Rafi and I will venture out in a bit and take a long, wet walk because the winds will pick up later and I don't want to get hit by a falling tree branch.

He doesn't care about the rain, thank goodness and I have waterproof gear.

I'm right on the long island sound on the border of NY/CT. Just very windy here with light rain. Just heard a crack outside as a small tree limb fell on my car, but lucky enough, it didn't do any damage. Everyone in town here still has power now, but I'm sure that won't last much longer.

The news just updated. They said the pressure is lower than expected lowest since an early 1900's storm. This means larger surges and higher winds. They showed a swatch where the increase in winds would be worst- I am smack deep in the swatch. They said tonight is a full moon high tide-goodbye creek property. I do not want to lose power. There is not enough population in my in the woods for community for repair to be at all prioritized- we would be out forever!
I have crates stacked at the door for the cats. The other building we own has dog crates, bowls, litter boxes, etc so I just need to be able to transport them.
