Supposed to start this afternoon. My lawn is still making squishy sounds wherever I step. It's gonna be a while before the earth dries out around here. I pulled a broken fence post out of the ground yesterday afternoon and the 30" hole it left behind instantly filled with water like a well.

1 to 2 inches of rain doesn't sound bad. 50 to 65 MPH wind gusts could be a problem though. Might be a good idea to check your generator... :)

That's permanently ready to go. May need a bilge pump though... :eek: My son was at the Brigantine meeting and RT 30 had the bay lapping at the shoulder with just the start of the full Moon helping the tide along.

Got almost 3 inches of rain here last night - and look at this forecast. Could be rough going on the little sand roads for awhile....

I remember a year when I lived in Medford... maybe 2004?... where it stayed wet and humid for a few weeks. Everything was covered with mold. I still have some tools that were stored in my toolbox in the finished basement, and the mold left marks permanently etched into the plastic handles.
