We're now getting the rain in Orlando. Still not much in the way of wind, but we'll take the rain, for sure.

Edit: Rain is starting to pick up. Come on, rain, we need ya! Wind, you can stay away

Just had a couple of interesting squalls come through St. Cloud (Osceola County) decent rain and 20 - 25 mph wind coming out of NNE - - some dead fronds down near the lake front and white caps on the lake - - glad we were prepared - - excellent dress rehearsal for the next one.

Here on the east coast directly across from Lake Okeechobee, around 7pm we experienced high winds and very heavy rain for about 30 minutes. Ever since, its been constant rain and I'd say winds gusting up to 30+mph.
Where we're located, seems storm is moving over us to the N/E and the back side of Ernesto was MUCH stronger than the front!

Around 4 am this morning I think, no glasses to see, we had a very windy squal come through, It did not last very long but I would estimate the winds to be about 35-40mph but it was racing very fast. It merely sounded like a window washer with a pressure hose attacking my window from the Northwest

Everything right now in the Tampa/ Clearwater area is calm, just another summer day. Some rain this morning with a few squalls and some mild breezes from the Gulf, but all cleared out now. Might be some more coming in later (according to radar). The worst weather we saw was that first feeder band with all the lightning 48 hrs ago. After that, it was happily pretty lame.

Here in MD a lot of the damage was only semi-related to Ernesto due to other atmospheric factors creating a massive pressure gradient and thus sustained 35-40mph winds from the northeast - winds lasted over 24 hours, but were at their peak for less than 12.

We had 4 foot tides (based on NOAA readings). A neighbor's boat washed off their peir onto our beach - we managed to get it back to their peir and on their lift, but it had a lot of damage. Ourselves - we had some washout on a low bench (designed to protect the main part of our property from storms), but the we're entirely intact otherwise. Some settling along the bulkhead (it's was a new a year ago, so the dirt is still compacting with every major rain storm). Our neighbors, however, all had wash out, with some locations having significant washout behind their bulkheads. The beach had many of it's marsh grasses severed at the root, and peices of many peirs are now sitting on the beach. Lot's of power outages in the area, but we never lost power for more than a handfull of seconds - luckily.

I'm on the Chesapeake near Annapolis, to give you some orientation.
This station is just north of us and has full NE exposure to the winds (unlike the NOAA stations): http://www.wunderground.com/weatherstation/WXDailyHistory.asp?ID=KMDPASAD5

My son who is on the USS Theodore Roosevelt (Norfolk, VA) told me on Friday morning that the ship clocked winds of 75 MPH from our old pal Ernesto.
