Matthew is just drawing even with my area now - it was a wet and blustery night, but other than a few small branches down, so far no damage in my immediate area. Other counties aren't so lucky, of course. I still have power, though a lot of my FB friends reporting in via their phones do not. I had hot coffee this morning!
The forecast now is for sustained winds of 40+ mph in my neighborhood, which is far better than the 70+ mph called for yesterday. It's going to be rainy and windy as hell for the next 10 hours, because as I said, this thing is moving slowly, and it's very, very bad at the coast, not too many miles from here.
And look at the projected path:
We could do this again by the middle of next week.
Sophie actually asked to go outside to pee, and we managed to dodge the next downpour by a few seconds. She's just going to have to deal with the potty pads for a while.
