Some hard rain all day but the winds have stayed under 40 and it's not constant.

Wish us luck!
Definitely wishing you and yours the best. I hope you still have electric. We do currently, honestly, so far this has been not too bad on this part of the Bay.

News is saying those who've lost power may be without it for up to 2 weeks.

Best wishes for everyone!

No power lots of rain. Almost 5" so far. Lots of debris. Have to keep checking on the Searay every hour. Sonic is out on its trailer. This is not going to be a fun night. Lots of noises making me jumpy plus waves pounding my bulkhead and it being pitch dark doesn't help at all.

We're getting our worst winds right now, the gusts are incredible (for here).

Hope you all are okay!

No power for the last 24 hours (just came on).
Lost a couple trees on the property, couple more are leaning real hard and found a window shutter 2 doors down. Lots of clean up to do. This sucks.
