At this time , I am in Washington D.C working. It is raining steady, a few wind gusts at about 20-25 mph. Nothing serious.
No sideways rain yet. Yesterday I filled a zinc cattle tank half way full of water and will let the rain do the rest. Just in case.
Tied down all my lawn furniture to trees. Picked up all the loose stuff. Luckily I had my bad trees cut down this summer.
The cub is in the shed and will be dry until the sideways rain starts. (open front) I think we will be O.K. Just hope we don't get tornadoes .
Update 8:00 AM and all is well. Freezer is full of venison and other stuff, water supply is fine. Kids are not little now, so a couple of gallons of milk is all we need for a few days. Truck and Car gas full. two cans of gas on standby. Cell phones charged.
Can re charge from the car if needed.
See other post on telephones. Was raining hard in DC . Here in my part of Va. the rain is not as heavy. A crew of about 20 utility trucks passed me last night headed East toward DC on my way to work. They were not from around here. Glad to see they are pro-active. Those guys earn their money.
Update # 2 11:05 PM Wind has been blowing much harder, Rain not as steady, Tree limbs breaking off in the neighbors yard,
Power out across the street. Heard about 3 transformers blow in the neighborhood so far. Good luck and many prayers to all in the affected area.
Update #3 Tuesday Morning , all is ok here. Nothing new rain is very minimal. Cloudy and wet. Wind minimal.
Let you know more after I go around town.
