My parents used to have friends that lived just across the river from Portsmouth, NH in Kittery, ME. I met them up there one fall and we had a great time. Beautiful scenery.

Mathew, in biblical tradition, will wipe another evil extremist creation from the face of the earth - in Gitmo. Even Obama could not destroy that evil extremist prision.

My buddy in Bethany Beach Delaware was trapped in his house until late this afternoon.

There is nothing current about the weather here. It's been the same for the past days..... constant rain

ORLY? Seemed as though we lucked out. Wasn't as bad as Rehoboth and Dewey. Year round neighbor called to report minor flooding - which almost always happens when you are only 1-5 ' above sea level. Nothing really that unusual.
Where in Bethany is your friend? I'm curious if he/she is more inland than our place.

Gotcha... Storm seemed to stay more inland. Hope he didn't suffer too much damage - if any. Saw some awful pics from Dewey.

Here is a cool link from a storm back in the 60's.

Matthew rainfall totals.

I can't even imagine 20 inches of rain. It landed most heavily on the coastal plains, which I guess is good because it wasn't falling in the mountains and rushing down the slopes, tearing up the valleys. But when it all lands on flat land, it takes a while to flow to the ocean.

power out twice today, and this windstorm has been described as the "little" one of two, the less little one to arrive tomorrow, the remnants of a super typhoon west of us. ferry runs canceled, floating bridges closed. talk of twenty five foot waves and 100 mph winds. Also reports of winds in Seattle at 60 mph plus. That's going to bring down some trees.

I have gassed up the car, genset on patio, two mostly full gas cans, food that can be cooked without electricity, two handles of bourbon, flashlights all around, half a cord of wood. I might go out and get some dvd from redbox, maybe not. Can't power the display and player from genset. phone charging no problemo. We might take a storm chasing trip on Saturday.

I am in SE NC. Maybe 30 minutes from Myrtle Beach. We only had 15.5" of rain. The power went off, but I have a generator. I am on the "hill". The water ran off to someone else's home. A fellow we know died in the flood. The water swept him off his feet and he was gone. The wind on the back side of the hurricane was the worst. Just a few miles from here the country side looks like Haiti. Anyone wants to send me relief money then I'll spend the hell out of it. Help Ed thread.
