It is very calm and quiet out. Very light rain-tourists wandering around. The usual.

the wind is here now 40-50 mph, we're taking bets how much longer the neighbors weeping willow is going to last- the trees have all their leaves on- so, they will take the brunt of this storm, as oppossed to in the winter with no leaves
not a misquito or black fly anywheres!!

Here in the crown it's just been raining off and on all day. Nothing really heavy, just steady. Barely a breeze too, but that's supposed to change later tonight sometime.

Power has been out here for three hours. Generator is a god send in summer outages - freezers are full of summer's bounty

Our power came back on (around a half an hour ago) after being off since 4 p.m.

There were a lot of downed branches and debris in the road when we went out to dinner, but overall, it was overblown - literally and figuratively (at least for our piece of central Maine anyway).

It's still breezy here right now, but I've seen worse. I'm hoping the corn will still be standing in the a.m.

Power never went out here in the crown. Although the wind blew and the s... err you know what I mean. Haven't been out yet to see if there was any damage. Still a stiff breeze with some gusts.

Wind was ok here, some gusts were powerful. Rained quite a bit. Power went out around 8ish, I believe...right when it got dark. Came back on for about 10 seconds an hour later, went out again. Came back on for about 5 minute another hour later, went out again. Came back on around..maybe midnight to 1 am...not sure exactly, was too tired to pick up the phone to see the time.

When the power went out and the wind was the worst, I was texting my brother on cell phone which requires I stand at the door to get a signal. I watched my neighbors get in to their cars and drive for some place, I'm assuming, that had power.

That seemed not such a smart idea...if the wind is blowing like that, where the possibility for trees or power lines to fall...driving around may not be the wisest choice.

Wasn't too bad...lit some candles, texted my brother for a few hours, then got in bed and read from my Kindle that I had charged up beforehand for just this type of event; power loss.

Not much of a storm if you ask me.
