Very strong winds here. Gusting over 50 easily.

Yes, my unscientific opinion of the winds and debris flying around here in Carteret is DAMN :o

Thanks for all your graphics.  Can you provide time frames with the totals?  Is that hourly, daily, multi day?  A few local totals (near Dover) look like they might be 2 day totals.  

My mistake: hurried multi tasking.  Those weather underground are ONLY since midnight!!!!! You'll see some massive amounts near PHL when this all said and done...my """guess""" 10" since last evening.

Plus we've known for two days that rain wasn't going to be the big ticket item for our immediate area.

I don't understand the obsession with rainfall. Had less than 2" with Sandy.

Agreed. Wind is much more interesting IMO.

I'd rather be on the east side of this storm from a weather enthusiast point of view.

1) With tropical systems you should never really rule out flooding problems.  Small shifts or unmodeled mesoscale features can produce tremendous totals.

2) Flooding (river, flash, coastal) produces the most widespread damage (especially in NJ) and is the most frequent storm related threat.  River flooding in particular, caused by widespread excessive rainfall, produces catastrophic and sometimes long lasting effects.

That feeder band jumped over most of us-far eastern LI may get into it....

It's coming for LI and SW CT. Just starting to pivot back.
