Ernesto is coming!


Winds and rain! The rain really started pouring around 4am. We've had over an inch since midnight with wind gusting up to 20mph. Reports over the local 2M repeater describe some roads being flooded as well as powerlines down in some areas around Hampton. The current forecast shows the majority of rain passing by 4pm, but that doesn't corresond to the National Weather Services projected track and timeline of Ernesto. I'm starting to get some water pooling in the backyard and in front out on the street. Nothing I haven't seen before during a good rain storm. As of 8am, Ernesto is still in North Carolina... but it's coming!
