    I have been switching back and fourth between the news channels, doesn't look like there was much of a surge in south Jerz. Action News has a guy in Margate, the water didn't get past the dunes, but thats all I saw so far.

    based on the bombs coming through at pumphouse this morning around 8:30 I can't imagine sea bright fared well. Absolute bombs detonating out there!!

    If there is anyone who should have damage it is me. I live on south point that sits right in the middle of Chicoteague Bay MD . No flooding, no storm surge, no wind damage. The eye went right over us last night. Now I am watching the cam wondering where I can paddle out, lol.

    Water never made it past the dunes in AC. Peeked it all this morning and there is minimal damage. Couple of branches out in the street and some fences knocked over on the beach. Other than that, all is good. Never lost power. No flooding at all. I did run out of doughnuts yesterday though, so Irene definitely made a bit of an impact on me.

    Ended up staying put last night... after the surge was downgraded from 12' to 3-6'. Figured I was all boarded up, and as long as the ocean wasn't gonna come rushing up the street, we'd be ok.

    Lots of downed limbs, mostly small ones. Lots of debris... leaves and sticks. Several downed power and phone lines (one across my driveway), and the cops are cruising around telling everyone to go home and stay put. The ocean front is completely impassable, as are all of the low lying streets. The river is high right about now, and it's still not coming up the street very far. I'd say it's about as bad as, or slightly less than, the '92 storm.

    Yes we did stay. We had nowhere else to go, all of our relatives where in areas at least as vulnerable and all the hotels were full. I have a dog, a cat and 6 chickens to think about, lol. To be honest, even though I knew there was potential for trouble I have lived through so many hurricanes that this one didn't look that bad to me and the idea of evacuating to somewhere else just as dangerous and being stuck with hundreds or thousands of other people sounded more dangerous.
