I'm a few miles NE of Richmond, just on the southern edge of the high wind warning area. So far, about an inch of rain & wind gusting to 30-35 mph. Supposed to get worse as the day goes on. I figure to lose power this afternoon or evening. All the tractors are inside, the generator & chain saw work & I've got plenty of beer & dog food. Looks like it's going to be really bad north of here.

Ya that is one reason I am happy to live out here in Missouri. Bet the Navy has as many of the ships as they can out to sea right now. I still remember back when I was in the navy any time they had storm warnings like your having now all ships that could go to sea left the ports as fast as they could

Good Luck to you guys up there from where the hurricanes usually pass through. We only had rain and medium winds, just branches down, no trees in this area. Coastal flooding but nothing like where the strike area will be, and especially north of the landfall location. We're still getting light rain and winds, and a friend in the NC mountains reports light snow; the span of this storm is beyond the pale, must be over 1,000 miles. Time will heal it, but it's going to be some rough days from coastal Va to Mass.

Up here near Gettysburg, PA it has been raining all morning (guessing 2" or so). Ground is already saturated can see ponding in my pasture out my window. Expect when the wind picks up later this afternoon and overnight trees will go over taking the rootball and all soft as the ground is. Am as prepared as I can be, but was holding out hope until a little bit ago that this beast would skirt off to the North and miss most of us.

Wish all of you well,

Kirk

WX report from VJI airport in Southwest Virginia is rain/snow mix with tonight and tomorrow to be worse. Working in the shop today and hope everything is squared away as far as generator, and a little bit of extra food. All vehicles are topped off as is the propane.

Yeah, the ANG flies a lot of their fixed wing stuff west to the Knoxville airport. Cheaper to move the planes and put the crews up for the week than deal with the damage.

All the best to those that may be affected. The storm has taken over on our local news and we had a significant earthquake off the Queen Charlotte Islands - can't seem to get any news about it, just 'Sandy'. There was some fuss about a Tsunami hitting Hawaii, but NO local stuff. Weird.

They put out a warning, but it didn't amount to anything but a few inches when the first wave hit, so they retracted the warning.
