Everything is still calm in NJ. No rain yet, slightly cloudy.

I'm about to go drop my daughter off at Rutgers (freshman). She's the youngest and a Rutgers clean sweep. All three kids and two parents went or are currently attending Rutgers.

We're getting smacked right now. The rain is hard, the wind is harder and it's supposed to get worse.

My brother and his friend are out playing some football in the hurricane and are soaked, but they're having fun.

Supposed to get nasty though. Wish us luck!

so far some bands of heavy rain...not much now. The wind is minor so far too. I know it will deteriorate soon. If the power stays on, we'll be OK. Without it, sump pumps don't work and flooding becomes more of an issue.

Lost power. Using my phone to write this. We got smacked pretty hard. About 500,000 people in Maryland without power. It was pretty nasty. Really heavy wind and such. Hope the power comes back soon.

Hope everyone else is safe!

Personally dodged lots of bullets. No loss of power, flooding, wind damage, etc. No power since midnight on the next block from me. Lots of local flooding and trees down. The next town over lost a dam and water is flowing our way, but we're good. Took a walk and found some fish that got stranded as the water receded. I threw them back in the brook and did my good deed.

Hooked up our router to our generator. Thankfully it's a nice day so the house isn't too hot. Still don't have power but no worries, I've got a guitar that doesn't require it ;)

Lots of roads are flooded, lots of traffic lights are out. Mass confusion on the roads. Took my girlfriend like 45 minutes to get home when it usually takes 20. No one knows how to handle a broken stoplight.

Irene wrecked us up here in nowheresville, too. Lots of trees down, power lines down, roads flooded. Thankfully, we are all safe, but lots of people are being told no power until next week. I try to stay positive.
