I discovered this site last year when Isabel was headed my way; came back to follow Charley and this unusual season has had me glued. I've been meaning to post for a while - it just feels like spying if I never post - but didn't want to but in on the flow of pertinent information during the storms.

Anyway, in Kent County, MD (northern Delmarva), we've been feeling Jeanne's remnants this afternoon. Raining hard for hours now and my DirecTV signal is currently having a rough go, so that may mean we have worse on the way. I live right near the mouth of the Sassafrass River and the Chesapeake Bay, but up on a bluff (and in the third story of my building), so flooding's not much of an issue for me.

Oddly, the northern Delmarva has been relatively spared each time the hurricane remnants have gone northeast this year. Got some rain from Charley, but nothing unmanageable. Frances drenched Maryland on the other side of the Bay, but we got a couple showers if that. Ivan brought plenty of rain, but again not as much as across the Chesapeake and we didn't experience the tornadoes that parts of northern Virginia and central Maryland did. Even today, it started raining hard later here than in may areas west and north of us.
