    East Coast flooding: Tropical Storm Lee

    Whoa. We're in the Mid-Atlantic and it is really flooding out there... Raining nonstop for almost three days now. Schools are closed tomorrow, DH saw a small car floating away on his way home tonight, I-95 has been shut down near our home (the Woodrow Wilson Bridge) due to flooding on I-495 in Virginia.

    Two reported dead in flooding; motorists stranded in Fairfax

    Thank you, Mystic... Yes, he was shaken up - he called up and was quite distressed, couldn't stop talking about it.

    Sure are a lot of natural disasters/situations going on.

    Haven't been able to reach my Mom in Nutley, NJ...she emailed me a few days ago, saying she was all right, "no real property damage", but I haven't been able to catch up with her since.

    Anyone know anything about Essex County, Nutley, NJ? Kinda worried. Not too terribly so, but...well...you know.

    HC... I'm sure she's probably fine. The flooding does extend up that far, though. Is there anyone else you know that you can call?

    Here's some pics that include a lot where we are and some in PA and NJ:

    Had lots of flooding with evacuations and some serious damage here in PA. Sister lost her home, as did a close friend. Praying for all who are affected.

    We had Lee here for 3 days and it was almost nonstop rain. We had a lot of flooding, but no where near what you guys are having up there (after having Irene).

    I grew up in Fairfax County and it's so weird to read about the roads that are closed from flooding, especially the bridge and the Beltway.

    Please stay safe, everyone!!

    Spoke to Mom, she's fine (of course she is...I'm a worrywart, I suppose...), but is having some difficulty getting around.

    Still, prayers and thoughts for all those affected by this insane amount of water...
