...We also have the benefit of being in Northern DE, so we'll be buffered from the worst of it by New Jersey.  Thanks AHD!

I went through Hurricane Isabel in 2003 in Norfolk, VA. We were without power for 11 days. And of course the hot water was via electric heater. I was one smelly man at the end of 11 days. I managed to get one hot shower during that time by going to a friend's house once his power came up.

RVA for Isabel & Gaston.
Isabel hit me hardest, as I'd lost my job several months earlier. I was broke, & that was it. Bluesad
Gaston really changed the landscape. My house was on good elevation, so I didn't see any change at first. It was when I left to see my doctor(I had pneumonia), that I saw the damage. Almost every road out of Ampt Hill was closed, & when I finally found a way out, I saw mud all over the Chippenham PKWY, low lying bridges were gone. I later learned that people in apartments not a quarter mile from me had drowned.

I don't know how affected I'll be by this. Not as bad as Jersey, cause I'm up in the Philly area. We see some local creeks and rivers overflow a bit.

However, our local SEPTA (provider of buses, trolleys, trains and subways) announced NO public transportation will be provided by them Sunday and possibly Monday. So, my job refuses to close anytime due to weather (we only close three times a year. Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter), so I took off Sunday. I gotta go in Monday. I work tomorrow but should be home before the heavy stuff hits us. I'm done at five, we're supposed to get hit around 8.

They're evacuating my neighborhood.  I'm so friggin' PO'd.  We are expecting a massive 55 mph wind and 2 inches of rain.  Friggin' RI, over or under reacting to everything.

The rain is really starting to come down now, and the wind is picking up pretty heavily.  A manager at work wanted to keep us open til 1AM (I'm done at 5), but the owner stepped in and forced him to close the doors no later than 9PM.  As for tomorrow, I had taken off originally, but was informed that we may in fact be closed, and if they open at all it's not til 5, which is when I'm done anyway.

We've been getting a lot of rain for hours now, and the wind has picked up in the last 2 hours.  It's nearly horizontal at times, and we're getting water dripping in around the front windows.  I think it's being pushed up under the siding is the problem.

Found a new use for the plastic bins that we got from IKEA for the kids' LEGOs:  they're all under the windowsills, catching the water.

Tornado warnings. Beautiful.

All my windows are rattling, branches falling and lights flickering.

We've been through a few now as well.  As I understand it, these happen on the leading edge of the storm, so they should be done around 6-8 am for us.  I think you're a bit farther north, so it will be later for you.  Makes for a long night of keeping an eye on things.

Yes, that's here; after reading Andrew's post, I walked around the house checking the windows... okay for now.   Question  
I won't be sleeping tonight.
