Thanks. We got the northern edge of the Nor'easter up here. Please don't feed into the Weather Channel's hype by calling non-hurricane storms by some cutesy name. Even the NWS tries to discourage that silliness.

Lots of flooding here around the time of the perigean spring high tide, in the usual places. Again, nothing "super" about it, so let's avoid the media hyperbole.

Winds were brisk, but not really out of the ordinary for this type of storm.

Not to minimize the actual damage that happens from foul weather every year, but the weather broadcasters really seem to enjoy sensationalizing their reporting.
