      Rain Rain Go Away

      Did everyone survie the nasty weather here along the east coast? We had over 5 inches of rain but luckily no real damage around my house.

      Still raining here in Mountainside, NJ.

      Our basement is dry (we did extensive re-grading and installed french drains in our yard a few years ago). Most other homes on our street had ankle deep or more water in their basements last night.

      As long as we don't loose power while we're at work our sump pump has been running like a champ.

      Today show weather this morning said Cranford (near us) got 6.9 inches of rain so far.

      We were supposed to have nasty windy, rainy, and possible tornadoes yesterday morning. Well, I would say, we were more fortunate than those of you further north. It was blustery, and we had about 15 minutes of rain that amounted to a summer shower. That was it. Turned out to be a pretty nice day. Today is much cooler.

      We got snow on the hills and mountains here from about the 2000' level on up. Just pretty, that's all.

      un....real.

      they were calling for 2 inches of rain yesterday and high winds. we got neither. the heavy wind and rain didn't show until last night.

      no snow here, except for a few flakes in the mulch, etc., but i had to travel down to west chester this morning and i saw they got a few inches in some areas, and the city streets were covered in slush.

      60s by the end of the week, w00t!

      just put lady bugs on the apple trees with my 8 year old.

      8:56 am, 64 going to 73 degrees, no wind, no clouds, beautiful sun.

      picture perfect by my standards.

      i will be going over the hills to berkeley, a beautiful postcard view of san francisco on the way.

      where are my keys, my sunscreen, my sunglasses?


      i do not miss the east coast at all, edit, best of luck to you all, i wish you a rapid spring arrival.

      I was driving from NYC to DC yesterday...

      Worst rain i've seen in a LONG time -- took me 6 hrs to get back! I couldn't go over 50mph, as visibility was ZERO.

      If I were in my Cooper S, I probably would have been hydroplaning the whole way back..

      It was real bad here in California when it passed thru. We had 90mph guest in the passes. So bad that they shut the roads down and never re-opened them for high profile vehicles until later that night when the strom pushed thru.

      We ought to start a pool on who thinks it will snow this summer. One week it's raining and in the 30's... a day later it's in the 80's... then a week later it's in the 30's and 40's again.

      This year has sucked... weather wise.
