    Well, the wind is just starting to pick up a bit. It was only a bit breezy earlier, but we just got a couple of good gusts. I have to log out to bring a couple of things inside that I had forgotten about. I'll keep you all updated whenever I can though.

    Just got a report from co workers in Columbia MD and they are getting hammered with rain right now. I guess they expect the real deal later today. Hope everyone in the region stays safe.

    Probably a "declared value" policy. Replacement value would be astronomical.

    Many a boat, yacht and ship has been left to be destroyed by known incoming storms for the insnurance. This is SO common that for some hurricanes insurance companies go to marinas and move the boats with or without the owners being advised to deal with that practice. The book value of boats is typically dramatically higher than their actual value depending on actual condition. If a boat goes under, there is no way to know if the motor, interior, electronics etc were working and in good condition or not. Its the most profitable way to get rid of a worn out boat.

    Restoration on wood boats, yachts and ships is astronomical. Usually they can't even be given away, although above the waterline may look like they are very good condition.

    So far little to nothing here in Manhattan except tides.
    Barely wind, barely rain.

    Supposed to get much worse in PM but storm brunt looks to stay somewhat South and do a U-ee around NYC/CT/Boston.
    LI. Beaches still get hit. Winds will be high even in areas not shown in path.
    Tides might be very high/Flooding tonight from RI south.



    Wind Forecast still High

    It isn't supposed to get nasty until Tuesday and that map does not show the thing will be throwing 50-70 mph gusts and rain into WV, KY, S. VA. etc on the backside of the rotation. I think the bigger danger is the angle is so atypical that people south of the storm my not realize the outer loops are going to be hitting them on the west and south so I wonder how many folks are unprepared for what's coming.

    Looks like Atlantic City, NJ is getting hosed pretty good with this one. Shame.
