Nothing at all yet here. The line of storms has been holding just a mile or two North of me. Looks like I might get the edge of the storm before long though.

The company I work for lost power and yesterday they told us to leave at 9AM. I arrived this morning and we are still out. PSE&G kept pushing back the repair time and now online it says midnight tonight. They called this morning and was told the office was closed. I assume it was a recording. So I am already home for the day.

Looks like heavy storms coming today.

The storms will have extreme amounts of lightning, one to two inches of rain in short periods of time and damaging, straight-line or microburst winds

One of the storms hit me around 1:00 PM yesterday. Got dark as night and we had almost two inches of rain in a little over an hour. Absolutely no wind however. Lots of rumbling thunder and the power flickered a few times but didn't go out. Temperature dropped all the way down to 70 degrees, which was really refreshing!

Nixle warnings were sent for our area, but nothing materialized. Up north is getting it, as is Cape May.

From the eastern map it looks like we just might slip thru the 2 lines of big storms. I195 northward is getting clobbered. Sunny and windy here.

They are skimming me right now and all so far are staying west. Up to this point ..... a bust.

Yep, don't think we will be able to avoid this much longer, it is sweeping Eastward now. But it's a nice, breezy evening in the meantime. :)

Rained pretty hard here. Only one major sound of thunder.
