Weather channel report, as I write this, is only light rain.

Jack, I think you may be a little dis-oriented.
If you look at this map, North is up towards Harrisburg. East is to the right towards Philly, Down or South (Rt15) is towards Fredrick, MD about an hour away:
Number 1 arrow is the raceway with Grantham 2miles? to the East.
The Post Office grouped smaller towns into the larger towns, thus your brothers Mechanicsburg address (17055-17050). About 5miles West of Grantham.
#2 points to Dillsburg and points South on rt15.
As a side note:
Rain starts and is steady, then stops for a while, then picks up again.
Since 5am EDT (10-29-12). Up 0.19” to a total of 0.34”, We have 0.48 in our backyard.
At 10am it was:
Winds, N 12 G 20
Pressure, 29.48 998.4
Sometimes you can hear a howl....
Our local Fire Co. #19 had a one siren call at 6:20am. Wasn't close enough to the scanner to find out what it was.
Had a momentary outage (<5sec) at 7:16am. Long enough to set off every clock in the land.
Found out later there are outages already in the area.
For anyone that wants to keep track of the Central Pa. area, I'm sure your local Power Co. has something similar.
I'm planning an Album I'll post the link.
I'll try to keep updates say, 6-12pm, if I miss one it means power is out.
