You might get lucky Zeph, with your vacation plans.

I'm hosed on the other hand:

That’s still a lot of rain but perhaps no evacuation. I’m hoping none of the East coast has to deal with the storm and it heads straight north with no landfall.

Definitely something we have to watch.

This morning it looks like it is shifting closer to NC than up the bay; but, models are still showing a 50% chance it's going to curve north and still come through the bay before arcing over NJ and back out into the Atlantic.

I'm with you, I'd rather it go out to sea and miss everyone completely.

I don't know about your area, but my county is already hurting from all the rain we got over the summer; last Friday's freakish storm not only swept two people off a flooded road into the quarry (it made national news) but many roads are also still closed and some bridges washed out. If we have all that storm surge come up the bay, and a lot of rain coming down, it could spell disaster for the Conowingo dam and the surrounding areas.

That’s no good. :(

I hope things improve soon! These kind of storms may be neat to watch but they are no fun to experience.

Hang in there!

We are waiting to see if we should tie the canoe to the top of main street somewhere, or get the sandbags for the shop next to ego alley or both... sigh. Not to mention all that rain making a major mess of the golf courses.

No doubt.

In any event, it’s gonna rain. A lot.

Very unpredictable storm. Found this neat archive graphic from the noaa.gov site:

I'm still not 100 % convinced it is going to hit Wilmington, NC, as a cat 3 storm like some are predicting this morning; my gut is still telling me it is going to blow up and curve a little more northward.

For anyone that could be affected by this storm, stay safe and take precautions!

Yeah, it's still a bit out but who knows, the predictors aren't usually that far off. Looks like we might be heading back home a littler earlier in any event...

Just send the storm to California, we could use a reminder of what rain is!

I don't think California will want our storm surge. (think mudslides?) My home in South Carolina is kinda up on a high foundation but 12 foot surge might change all that. This is the third year in a row they've called for evacuation of the sea islands. And Wind and Hail insurance doesn't cover water damage, go figure.
