5:00 p.m. Hurricane report

It's been raining steadily since late this morning; the rain gauge shows about 3/4 of an inch (18 cm.). The wind has been steady without any spectacular gusts. One of the major bands must have arrived because over the past 15 minutes the rain has become quite heavy and the gusts have increased enough in velocity so that every few minutes one is audible. I'm guessing they're around 40mph. The worst is yet to come but it still feels like, as far inland as we are, this won't be a horrible storm.
