#BREAKING: under an EXTREME RISK of flooding shown in pink. In red, there is a SIGNIFICANT RISK, orange areas show an ENHANCED RISK, and in yellow there is an ELEVATED RISK. "Share" the word! -JB

2. I'm in Calvert.

Thunderstorms forecast til 2 a.m. Power's out here, using residual for computer, and candles for light!

Winds forecast to increase, to 27 mph; now allegedly 'only' 23 mph.

Not planning to go out for a 'while!'

3. Are you in safe area, Elleng?

I recall that you live very near water.

4. Actually I'm at river's edge, cove/creek on the other side, but on a somewhat

elevated little peninsula, so I'm FINE, Grasswire; thanks for asking!

Won't have to drive anywhere tomorrow; shopped today. Power is out, so lack of communication will be the only 'burden,' tho slight; guess I'll live without music (radio), and don't use TV until the evening news.

5. I, too, live on the edge of a river.

The lawn is about twenty feet above water in normal circumstances but the house did flood in 1996 (before my time here). The river is very tidal even though about eighty miles up from the ocean. I know how it is to keep an eye on the water at certain times. A tropical storm is a whole new level, though.
