We sustained a lot of damage here in NJ, but a few buddies I have worked with over the last 30 yrs, posted some pictures of nearby NY ( Orange County ..... home of Orange County Choppers ). These are roads I travel regularly:

Yeah, that rain was crazy. We only got 3-5" here in the city, but damn it was still alot.

Any idea how much snow that would equate to if the temperature was 15 degrees colder?

Forget the rain, it was the 70 mph winds! The front of my neighbors roof blew off. There are trees down everywhere and I still have no power and probably won't until Tues or Wed. Craziest storm I've ever seen around here.

A winter rain does no one any good. Here in central MA there is a lot of flooding of low-lying streets, apartments, etc. Our sump pump in the basement is working hard but the groundwater level is so high we've got water seeping right thru the concrete basement floor. Once an hour or so I go thru w/ the big squeegee and push it all into the sump pit, which spits it down the driveway and into the street. It is a tiresome battle, and as I type this we are still due for another inch of rain.:icon_mad:

Too much rain and all of the snow melting = disaster & floods.

I really enjoyed the picture of the police officer scolding the Mercedes driver; more money than brains category.

Nice pics! We're no stranger to flooding here on the Mississippi River. I just can't believe people are driving through some of that. Oh, and I think you may have set a record for most pics in one post!:bananapartyhat:

LOL, I noticed the cop giving that look to the Mercedes driver.
There are some flooding issues here too, but not nearly like that.

I saw Singin' on earlier... but is he alright? he hasn't posted anything...

I hope so also ..... He lives very close to one of the area pictured. I also saw him on earlier today, and he was on Nasioc over the weekend. But many of our the rivers/creeks were cresting today.

Most of those pictures were from ham / local rescue radio operators in the immediate area.
