My buddy has been stuck in Jamaica, NY since last night because his connecting flight to Toronto was cancelled. He just BBM'd me and said his hotel lost power.

I've been trying to reach my colleague in Queens and he's not replying. I imagine cell service is probably jammed.

Just got in from the WNY southtowns and ready to man StormDesk SouthCentral Niagara.

IT'S RAININ SIDEWAYS

Back to you.

Landfall is just south of Philadelphia looks like...

Looking at the radar for DIX.

Washington DC is getting the SW eye-wall but the tropical aspects of this storm are disintegrating pretty quick.

They are turning power off in parts of NY as a precautionary and to speed startup when the storm is over.

How are your pets handling it? Are your dogs or cats acting 'different' like more scared and spooked? How about extremely hyper?

Heavy rain with a 60 kmh North wind in Burlington. Don't get that combo too often outside of a frontal passage.

While this won't really be of use if your power is out (unless you are using a mobile device, in which case you should get the Hydro One app).....

It also won't be useful if you're not served by Hydro One.

Just cold and windy, the wind is gusty at ground level but you can just hear it roar up overhead above most of the trees.
