Sandy Update 1

Back again. Wind has seriously picked up. For a while i thought our rain collector had clogged with debris since it was telling me that it was NOT raining. So i trudged out to check.

Turned out that the wind was blowing the rain SIDEWAYS!!!!!! and nothing was going into the collector. The rain is sort of light right now, but the wind is sustained at 15mph, gusting to 25mph.

Reports from our local radio station WESR 103.3 ( there is serious flooding on the seaside and the bayside. High tide on the bayside is still an hour away. AND County Emergency Radio is beginning to report wires down and transformer fires.

Here at the F&P we still have power, and Storm Activities are underway.

Before blogging I always found Your storms fascinating, so strong and sort of magnificent.
Now I know a lot of people in the US and now I don't like those storms at all!

I really hope it won't be too bad! Stay safe!
