Woke up about 3 am to howling winds and by daybreak I could see the maple tree in my front yard has a major limb blown down. They say this wind storm is going to last until tomorrow so I don't know what else is coming down by then...

With the wind it's so cold out there I think I'm going to let the blowdown just lay there until tomorrow :)

Up here in New England so many trees- mostly maple and oaks-have been compromised by the winter moth infestations of the past few years, as well as the gypsy moth and tent caterpillars cycles, that every storm brings more damage everywhere.

We didn't have wind but we had a big ice storm in NE Texas last week. Trees broken all over the place.

Still a fair amount of wind here even now.

In the meantime 4 of my neighbors came over with chain saws and pickups, and in like 1 hour we cut and cleared the mess. Took the cut up sections to the recycling area where they mulch up trees.

I sure hope this wind dies down later today before more trees come down. They closed the main road in my subdivision on account of some trees fell across the road.

Morning radio dj here was talking with a travel agent in Virginia this morning about a cruise she is organizing. The hotel where she is staying is without power and wind is 60 MPH. Makes me appreciate the rain coming our way today.

No. Really no place to keep it. We live in a townhouse.

We’re living Amish.

CO2 ... is there anything it can't do?

It's interesting how all the substantial storms we've had lately have coincided with astronomical high tides.

The high winds are supposed to last through three tide cycles. The noon tide caused many of my neighbors to be evacuated. The high tide tonight will be even worse. There a few houses and about a dozen cars under water down by the beach.

I'm a bit higher than my neighbors so I have no issues with the storm surge -- but the wind driven rain has flooded my cellar -- a fairly common and inconsequential occurrence. My anemometer recorded a gust of 69 mph a little while ago.

The tide tonight is predicted to be a record high -- higher than the blizzard of 78 and the Perfect Storm -- both of which destroyed dozens of houses in the town.

Good times.

It's all gravy from here on...

Winds gusting to 40mph here, far from the Atlantic. Pretty normal to have winds gusting to 50-60mph and I've been in straight-line winds of 100mph +. But, no tide surge here and it's sunny and 65F right now so why did I post?

Question. What is the speed of the winds causing your power outages?

60 mph gusts.

We have trees. Lots and lots of big trees. Well, a few less now.

60-65 mph gusts and probably 45 mph sustained most of today. It’s blowing trees down on houses, roads, and power lines. The ground is soft from days of rain.

Yes, the ones I’ve seen have tipped out by their roots.

Calm now. But every once in a while the wind will gust up seemingly out of nowhere.

I guess there’s more wind later tonight and tomorrow.

Blow out on the Potomac... only seen this happen a few times in 50 yrs. The Potomac River is basically dry aside from the channel.
