Great, I'm supposed to fly back out of Philly Sunday night.


That's going to be dicey, but you should be ok.

5PM NHC advisory just came out...track shifts further west, having it over south central Jersey as a tropical storm Tuesday afternoon

I'm down here in Galveston again and just made a deal with my customer to extend my visit through next week. I'm not really interested in flying back into this crap this weekend.

Wondering if I left everything 'battened down' enough to make it through the storm.

I'd be excited about in a way, but I'm just upset this is probably going to ruin my little girls first trick or treat experience.

Am I being selfish and not looking at the whole picture (ie. peoples homes flooding and people dying)? Yes.

As far as rainfall potential, they are already postin upwards of four inches of rain in western PA, and I doubt that will be all since it will slow down out in that area.

I wish I could on Monday. Maybe we'll be closed.

I think we'll be OK, shaf, for the simple reason that I purchased some nonperishables and a lot of bottled water. Had I not, then it would probably be the storm of the century.

I'm south central PA, right on the track of the middle of the storm. All day we were getting ready for a disaster and will continue preparations on Monday

Something that helped us last time was a car cell charger. Kept the phones going and communications with the outside world. If you only have a wall charger, might want to get a car one.

Hmm...this can't be surface winds. It shows 88 knots for southeast PA and Maryland, which isn't really possible (this comes to over 100 mph). The max sustained winds don't come close to that, and there's no way the gusts are approaching that inland that far.

These may be winds at 5000ft

Edit: just checked, 900 hpa is 3000 ft
