chatting to friends in Philadelphia and its windy and wet but not terrible yet, they're trapped there in a hotel and the hotels preparations consist of supplying each room with a couple of the long life chemical lights in case the power goes out...


as far as they're concerned they'll be fine as long as the internet holds up  ;D ;D ;D

 :o

The NOAA storm surge maps are talking about 100% probability that there will be a 10ft storm surge all the way up to New Brunswick.

Please let people be safe  :-\

Wow indeed!

It's a clear moonlit night here, but I've got that knot in my stomach you get when the wind's so strong it threatens to remove the roof on the byre and the beck is rising so fast it will soon wash away the footbridge  :gloomy:
