Woke up this morning to howling winds only to find out that the hurricane has lost strength and the winds are nothing like what was predicted. Right now, I have sustained winds of 10 mph out of the NW. Barometric pressure is 29.15 and only 5 inches of rain so far. That will change as the day goes on, but we will be ok, with God's help.
Also, I took a video of my backyard, but it's too large to post on here. It's 93 mb. I'll try to get another one and make it smaller

The storm surge predicted might come in at high tide bringing 15-20 foot of tidal surge.

We haven't had any bad winds, but we were under a tornado warning for most of the evening last night. Currently, it's 83 with winds out of the SW at 3 mph. Barometric pressure is 29.87 and rising. The rain gauge on my PWS is acting up, but my manual gauge had 3 1/2 inches from the rain yesterday.
