    Looks like we might get some significant rain through tomorrow night. I see a strong storm headed into Toms River right now, but as usual it's dry down here. We have been missing most of the storms for the past few weeks.

    It looks to me it may or may not hit me very soon. It is just skimming the edge of me. We shall see.

    Looking at the radar again I would say it will mostly miss me.

    Just like yesterday. A lot of noise not much rain. Got about a 1/4" in 10 min earlier but that's it. Lightning is striking within a mile of me now but no rain.

    It rained really hard last night for maybe an hour, starting around 10:00PM, lots of thunder and lightning. Was concerned because I was about halfway through a 17 hour video render and realized that I had plugged my computer into the wall outlet instead of the UPS when I re-arranged things for the FIOS install. Fortunately there were no power interruptions and the video finished rendering this morning.

    Was surprised this morning to see about and inch and a half of rain had fallen. Must have been the most intense rain we've had for quite awhile, lots of stuff washed down the driveway and along the bottom edge of the the yard.

    Another storm came through this afternoon and has been raining on and off, finally moving out now. Got about 2 inches this time, so this has been pretty significant down here. :)

    I'd be surprised if I got more then 3/4" total. Everything skirted by either north or south. They'd very local though. A mile in either direction my friends got pounded.
