Sunny here in Northern Virginia right now- yesterday wasn't too bad either- we got some Thunderstorms late last night, but not the torrential rains of the past few days. My wife's office is hidden by the wing in the pic below- she says the pond in the lower left corner of the Pic has been within 6 inches of the road (VA606- Old Ox Road) all week.
Also, a lot of roads are still closed due to standing water, and parts of Rockville, MD were also evacuated yesterday due to fears of a dam failing. Fortunately, it looks like the worst is over here. Stay dry everyone...

After being flooded out in NOLA years ago, I've never since lived in an area where I come home to water in the house. My TH is high and dry.
I've lived here 15 years, and our Sunday-Tuesday rain was the most I've lived through since living in the Big Easy back in the 70's. According to the TV weather guys, the DC area set a record for the wettest June on record.
Lots of isolated flooding in low lying areas. Several federal buildings along the Mall were hard hit, with their basements flooding, taking out power and phone services.

Where I am it is relatively dry, I am to the north and west of the bulk of the rain that has hit eastern NY/PA the past few days.
A bridge on I-88 in Sidney, NY has washed out... two dead from that. Go to NYTimes.com, a picture of the washed out bridge is on the main page.
The Thruway, I-90, has been closed since yesterday afternoon from the I-88 interchange in Schenectady to the I-481 interchange in Syracuse. That's 117 miles. From what I can tell it should be open by noon EDT, if not already.
All Amtrak Empire Service trains are cancelled west from Albany, and only limited service between the City and Albany. The Lake Shore Limited is only going as far east as Syracuse today. AFAIK almost all bus services aren't running.

Just waiting on the next batch of storms to push through the area, bringing more (now) un-needed rain. We'll get a bit of a break this weekend, but come Monday--well, rain rain go away. Looks like a wet Fourth for us.
The flooding has been immense, especially with the creeks and small streams--doesn't take much to push them to a flood state. And with all the paved surfaces that abound in suburbia, that certainly doesn't help matters.
What I'm more concerned about are all the retention ponds that dominate suburbia. All that standing water is going to take forever to dissipate, which means some crazy-heavy mosquito breeding...
When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

We have been unaffected by the flooding. I am only 8 miles from the beach so most of the excess water can run into the Metedeconk River and out into the ocean.
My colleague has not been so lucky. She lives right on the Delaware River in Ewing, NJ close to TTN and she got evacuated yesterday and probably won't be allowed back until Friday. She's having to stay in a hotel near work until then.
Here in Chicopee Ma, we just got hammered by a severe front that came up. CEF was in a hold and we had some localized street flooding and some trees down. Other day city hall was closed due to flooding downtown. But the sun is peeking now so we should be ok now....
