Rainy Saturday

Clouds are rapidly thickening up as the moisture shield from the remains of Ida nudges across northern New England and into southern Quebec this morning. The main wind has remained along the immediate coast from Maryland north to Maine with just a northeast wind up to 20km/h in Montreal. Gusts to 45mph are possible along the immediate coast. Inland the rain may accumulate from 15-25mm (1 inch) locally and taper to showers tonight. The center of the storm has moved east off the coast of North Carolina, and is well removed from the moisture. The surf is slowly subsiding along the coast, but not after producing record damage in some locations.

Bill left me a comment below directing me to an incredible site with awesome pictures of the recent storm damage on Hatteras Island in the Village of Rodanthe. The subject of many of the photos is a home named Serendipity which was the main star in the film Nights in Rodanthe. I have taken numerous pictures of the house myself and walked that very beach several years in a row. None of my photos come close to these amazing pictures that Bryan Elkus has taken.
