    Also the waves are going to be firing. Forecast as of now (for ocean city) is 11.5ft @ 15 seconds with offshore winds Fri morning. Remaining at 6-8ft @ 13+ seconds through sat evening. That means 12+ft faces at the right break.

    Heavy rain and a really active storm lightning-wise above me right now.

    Holy crap that storm was no joke. Extremely heavy rain and strong wind. Gutter got knocked off the side of the house, whole yard is a river now. I took some video but I missed the gusts. Just lots of flooding in the front and back yard running down the hill. We have a storm drain on the upslope of our driveway, as well as a hump for water runoff. Clearly neither worked well enough..

    Just got back from New England. Went out to plum island on my Uncle's boat via the Merricmack last fri. Then up to Stowe, Vt to camp saturday and then downhill mtb bike at sugarbush sunday,, which was so sick. . Then chilled in Mass mon with family and then I went solo down to Rhode island to camp and surf/skimboard tuesday and wed night. Just got home, surfed at Naragasett this morning! It stormed 2/3 nights I camped, the night in Stowe i set the tent up in the dark during a thunderstorm and last night a really heavy storm rolled through RI but I was luckily not in the tent at the time. I've never seen so many bugs than at burlingame state park campgrounds in Southern RI, it was insane.

    Just a few short showers/sprinkles not even a drizzle out at York today. I think pville got fringed by that line rolling through the area now. Hoping it stays dry so I can skateboard. Been going everyday after work for past couple weeks with the dry weather.

    Still dumping rain here when I got up at 4:15. No thunder or lightning just steady rain. No wonder it's going to be so cool today.

    Spoke too soon, storms training over the area. It was almost what I imagine a microburst would be like but there was no wind when I went down to look. The raindrops were coming down completely straight but there was also sheets of finer drops coming down with it. Torrential rain though. I'm not sure but there must have been some wind before it but I didnt hear any creaks from the house so it couldnt have been anything strong like earlier. Also no lightning. Pretty sure a broader cell is moving into the area after the first one. And my damn cat, Spoon, is out. But shes from north philly so she'll be alright.

    Wow 80mph gusts, I've really missed out on the action these past two days.

    I had a clear view from the north of the rain core directly over you. I tried snapping pic as I could see the trailing edge of the storm very clearly but the picture came out blurry! Just got a good gust front and some heavy COLD rain and it felt amazing unloading the truck in it. Seems to be settling down for now, my car thermometer is reading 75 right now in Great Valley.
