Hey All,

Elsa summary here : Not too bad-Gust 67 Cape Cod, almost NO wind at Boston, gust 25 (maybe). Some isolated boats pulled  off moorings /run  aground.

Rain : Only 2" here in the city, but nearby Wellesly had  4.47".

Boston from   the 1st to the 10th July had 7.9 " of rain.

Still "taking on" water here , but not "disappointed" by Elsa's low rainfall total either. We  now need Sun    and more water later (which we may get this week).

At end of storm , vivid deep blue  clearing line pushed up from the SW. Low clouds cruising right along, mid / high clouds had  little movement.Interesting.

 Entire storm edge visible when started to clear- Dark precipitation clouds to North, deep blue to SW.Nice.

About 3 inches in Tewksbury which it about 18 miles to the northwest of Boston. No wind at all. All the wind was on the east side of the storm track.

Hey Chris,

Good to see a "neighbor" in here.

Elsa was kind of a bust, but that's OK.  Quabbin Reservoir (Boston's water  supply) approaching /or at 100% capacity, which I believe is  a 2 year supply.

We now need Sun for my garden , we are good for now on water.
