In SE VA we have over 5" of rain.
Ditches and roads are severely flooded.
Power is still on, but we have a diesel generator if needed.
Winds are not too bad,

Ok. Have fun climbing trees in it! That's a serious truggy. If that's your passion, then it looks to be overly capable. But please don't say you want to restore it or make it into a daily driver ;-)

150k folks without power- due back on tonight. Got about 7" rain as we are 30 mi east of Clt- got double that another 30 miles east... Winds were 50ish yesterday- coastal surge took its toll of course.
Could have been so much worse!! Glad you guys fared well- Expo was outside the storm's reach I believe.

Crazy day yesterday. After spending a day and a half boarding up the house, Trey and I left the outerbanks yesterday morning @ 3am (causeway partially submerged @ hightide) in the storm and drove 400 miles West to Expo through strong winds and heavy rain pretty much the entire way. On the Asheville side of the mountains things were much nicer, just the occasional light shower.Left expo and drove right back into it as soon as we crossed over the mountains and all the way back up into Virginia. We took the LWB (fast and comfortable) and it was getting pushed all over the road by the winds. This morning turned on the televison to see all the devestaion everywhere we were yesterday. 95 closed in NC in 4 places. I 40 also closed. Rt 70 closed. in excess of 850 water rescues in NC as of 8am this morning. 16 plus inches of rain in many area's. 9 counties have their 911 system down. After days of being told it was going to turn East much further South, NC got wackhed hard. 12-18 inches of rain in a short period of time. This picture was 80 miles inland @ a major high speed merge on NC 70 headed away from the OBX. My brother took this one , we cleared this area while it was still dark. Stalled, submerged, abandoned cars everywhere in Eastern NC.

!6 inches of rain doesn't make for hydroplaning, its more like water skiing. Hope everyone's friends and family are ok. From my perspective this was billed as an event that was going to culminate much further South and that resulted in NC being somewhat of under prepared/ guard dropped. On Thursday as we were buying plywood the folks @ the lumber store in Otway,NC were surprised I was "still" going to go through the motions and wanted me to be clear they wouldn't take a return on the plywood I was buying.

buddy with a 2500 Duramax dually yanked out the f250 first. Then I snatched the 101 with the 250. we were worried about the skid steers getting stuck in the muck so we left them at home. They will be down in a week or so to finish cleaning up all the de bri.

Our house is on very high ground, so no flooding.
The yard is a mess, but we didn't loose any trees only scores of branches.
Saint Brides road nearby was blocked by a huge fallen oak tree that was quickly cut up by locals before any City crews could arrive.
Lots of local roads and intersections flooded.
We never lost power for any length of time.
Water is still flowing quickly through the ditches as the area drains after 8 to 14" of rain.
Local schools are closed due to flooding.

The remnants of Marthew came north yesterday and drenched the eastern region of Massachusetts. We need the rain.
But having been out there in the morning for the Dana Farber half Marathon and refereeing two games yesterday afternoon I was glad to get home and dry/thaw out.
