Everyone I talk with is complaining about the humidity. The air is just "heavy" and stifling. In addition, the power has been blinking on and off since Hanna passed by. I don't know what is causing it, but I've heard of at least one refrigerator that "gave up the ghost" because of the power surges.
There is still a threat of rip currents, so please pay attention if you choose to go in the water. I know this won't last, and we are all delighted that there are no storms threatening the Outer Banks at this time.
