I live on Long Island (New York) and the weather channel and all the news stations are saying that we're gonna get some serious rain today. I live in a waterfront area of town, I mean the ocean is like 30 feet from me right now, so if we get the kind of rain they're talking about, I'll probably be swimming to my car later today. It's already pouring rain and it's probably not stopping anytime soon. It happens all the time really, combine some hard rain with high tide and we get as much as a foot of water on the sidewalks, nothing big. But, Hurricane Wilma is heading up the east coast straight towards 2 low-pressure systems. This is exactly how the "Perfect Storm" was formed (yes, the movie was based on a real storm) and that absolutely pounded Long Island. So if it happens again, I can look forward to a llooooonngg day. I already took the day off work, at this point I'm just anticipating the worst, and I've been looking out my window every 45 minutes to see where the water's at. It's already pouring into my basement, I can hear it down the stairs and smell it (from the wet wood, it STINKS). And the water is already starting to come over the bulkheads in my yard, forming huuuuge puddles and killing the grass. I might just put on my rain coat and some boots, do a little fishing. And if it gets deeper then 3 feet I'm taking my canoe for a ride around my neighborhood. I just really hope that's the worst that happens. Anyone else live in the northeast/New England area? How is it by you?
