MC, did you see any curved clouds in the sky? When we get the tail end of a hurricane here in Montreal, we can usually see a definite curve to the clouds.

Too be honest I didn't look. Next time I will.

It sounds as though we were lucky here in the north west of England. Across on the coast of Northern Island a sailing competition in Strangford Lough was hit by a storm that capsized lots of the boats. It does, however, beg the question of why they didn't cancel it when
the weather forecast had been talking about high winds for a couple of days.

I hope the Big Bertha didn't affect any DCers and you roofs are still in place.

We stayed with my cousins in the Twin Cities area last night, and I was glad I brought a hoodie, it was cold this morning! As we drove the 5 or so hours home, it reached the low 80's.

Having flash flooding up in the mountains, haven't gotten any warnings for us in the valley. It's more towards the divide so may not come this way.

Hope you're safe, PF!

We had really cloudy, rain on and off all day. Nothing significant, in fact barely enough to water stuff. It was really humid though, and mid 80's F.

We have the Sapphire and Garnet Ranges between us and the area of flooding. And no more notifications for over an hour.

Be sure to have your flotation devices handy...

We have been, and will be, in the mid-70s for days. All afternoon it's been cloudy, gloomy, sleep-inducing weather. I'm starting to lose the fight. This is my kind of baking weather. For some reason I've been in the baking mood. So much for any weight I've lost recently.
