We lost powere at 6 AM up here off on Quinn street. Our coffee timer is set to 5:30 so we at least got one hot cup of coffe before the power went out. The wind is now picking up speed right now, but so far, only a little bit of water got into the house.

We have been getting flooded for about 10 years or so,every time there is a heavy rain. Town keeps putting on band-aids but won't fix it. This the second time in less than 2 weeks and the fourth time this year. The mayor does not want to spend the money to fix the problem.
