So Far, So Good

We seem to be weathering the storm pretty well here. Our power has stayed on, and we don't seem to have any damage.

It's been raining all day, but not very heavily, and it's gotten quite windy at times.

Depending on which forecast you choose to believe, we're either past the worst of it now, or we're in a bit of a lull, and will been seeing a lot more wind over the next hour, then tapering off.

If the Weather.com StormTracker is to be believed, the center of the storm will be passing within about fifty miles of us between now and morning. However, the winds shown there don't seem to jive up with the local hourly forecasts, so I don't know what to believe or expect.

I do know that, although things seem to be fine at our house so far, that's certainly not the case all over town. We're seeing reports of a power outages, downed trees and power lines, flooding, and some roof and other damage to homes. And that's just what people and the local newspaper are talking about on Facebook.

It looks like we'll still be getting some pretty good wind gusts through morning, but it seems like we've made it through the worst of it with no problems, as far as we can tell. Let's hope it stays that way!
