A real hurricane will rip your house right off the foundation so I don't think you have anything to worry about with your steel chairs.

Raining hard in Eastport - not much wind, just a sometimes stiff breeze. So far, so good

There was another earthquake magnitude 2.9 outside of Albany New York. It was close to a dam but the dam is ok. How bizarre, what are the odds? Still rooting for you guys up there.

I'm glad this isn't snow! The amount of moisture in this system would have probably meant we would be talking about how many feet of snow we were going to get.

The wind is picking up here in Portland, and it's been raining off and on.

I am hoping that the folks who have damage .... dont get told by their insurance companies that this was a water and not a wind event....so their policies don't cover the damages.

Here in Gorham it has been blustery with some really heavy rain....and I really want to see some sunshine and blue sky.
