    Default Storm Watch 2012!

    Thought it would be helpful to report from various locations on the storm about to hit. Its affects are being felt now. My company closed its doors today at noon.

    I'm in Orange County NY. which borders with northern NJ. Storm is supposed to hit landfall sometime this evening somewhere in NJ. Right now its raining and winds are starting to gust to a 45mph (est). I've got my generator ready, since most likely will lose power at some point. Seems this storm is moving slowly and will have some lasting affects.

    Stay safe out there!!

    Thanks. So far lights here at home have flickered and I'm hearing generators running in the distance so power outages are occuring. Winds are really nasty so likely downed trees. Fortunately the rain isnt as bad as it could be, hopefully that holds off. Last year after Irene, there were motorboats running thru town rescuing stranded folks. Hopefully my generator pulls through for me, but that will only give me limited lights and the fridge. We'll see.....

    Max wind hit 40 mph here but is not a constantly driving wind, still around 10 to 14 mph.

    The only way to acurately tell wind speed is with an anemometer, are you using one?
