Calm this a.m. Right now, no rain but it is breezy. I should take a pix of my bird deterents spinning! I put those $1 pinwheels around my pool fence to keep the dirty birds off my deck and fencing and they seemed to have worked. They are spinning their little hearts out. I am not seeing any trees or branches down but I know we have to wait for the rest of the wrap around winds and more rain which are expected until mid-late afternoon. Action News said earlier they expect the Delaware to crest at Washington's Crossing at 21.7 feet at 8 a.m. on Monday. I don't know what that means for us since that is 50 miles upstream. As far as rain totals, we got much more 2 weekends ago. We usually get a 'lake' between me and the neighbor anytime there is significant rain and the backyard floods behind the pool - but so far nothing. I know I didn't sleep too well - getting up to check things and check the status of the storm on the internet so today could be a nap day. All and all, so far a non-event, knock on wood........... Seems like people behaved sensibly and did what authorities suggested.
Anxious to hear from our blogging friends in the Carolinas and Maryland (and anywhere in the storm's path) hoping we learn they and their families are well.
