  1. Sorry about that.  I might have helped cause the KGW.

    I popped into Bissell after work and noticed a bald middle aged man on his phone at the bar.  Thought he looked familiar so I gave his phone a quick glance and saw this website.  Yankees polo shirt and audible ramblings about "dews" helped confirm. 

    I sent a flight his way and skipped out before he noticed. 

    Beer ye beer ye.

    I'd just drive to Portland and then take the ferry boat to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, if they are still running.

    Pretty sure I saw that Acadia is going to be closing on Saturday.

    And the CAT Ferry hasn't run out of Portland for like 10 years.

    I'm surprised to see no lines for gas and Hannaford is empty. 


    @dryslotduring the noontime news broadcast one of the local mets showed sustained around 40mph from mid morning until early evening for you and I. I bet we see some gusts in the mid 50s.

    I think if westward trends had continued it'd be a different story.

    Even so, the media hasn't been overblowing it, and Mainers are more hardy and self sufficient compared to SNE (not the posters here, just in general).  We've dealt with winds like this before - albeit without full sets of leaves and saturated ground.

    I'll be interested to see if anyone with waterfront property is making preparations.

    That high tide Saturday afternoon along the Maine coast should be a doozy, PWM is 12:47 pm.

    I just don't see keeping power here under frequent gust in the 45-55mph+ range, This is the 12z Nam.


    Between those two things, coast is going to get rocked.  Inland too, just minus the surf.  


    Seems like with the eastern ticks the general public is thinking their out of the woods.  


    More Allens, B&M Beans, and canned brown bread for me.

    Folks up here have no fuking clue what’s going on.

    Seems that way.  In a way, that's good - we don't need the panic, but people should absolutely be putting their prep plans in place today or tomorrow, assuming there aren't any big shifts east. 

    Aside from power outages and inland flash flooding, my biggest concern is surge/beachfront erosion and flooding.  These tidal rivers will fill up fast and there are a lot of houses right along them, especially down this way where we don't have the added elevation of rocky river shores like mid-coast and downeast.  We're all mud flats.
