    Yep, City water supply. We have a lake a mear minute walk from the front door if it runs dry. Bucket full of worms in case we needs food too! ::-)

    To the left of the house on the water is my lake rights.

    27 MPH gusts here so far. Very light wind driven rain. Nothing out of the ordinary... yet. Hopefully, it knocks down some of the 500 widow makers from the ice storm in '08

    Stay safe

    Temps here are still in the low 50's, winds gusting to 35, very light rain (I expect that to change within an hour or so).

    I love the ocean but this is one of those rare times where I'm happy to be ~250 miles inland (central/upstate NY). Cloudy here and dark, but wind is gentle and no rain yet. Storm will probably be all petered out by the time it gets up here.

    Well we ran our check list but it currently looks like a non event for us.

    I think it is time for an afternoon nap.

    Rain and wind and definantly starting to pick up here. Starting to see the creeks rise and a lot of standing water. They sent us home from work early and already closed it for tomorrow. Looks like it is starting to reach PA

    I guess it's good that the streams and lakes around here are all down a good 18" this year thanks to the wimpy snowfall last winter...

    'fraid it isn't good news at all it means you likely have problems elsewhere than where that bubble is also. Good luck.
