Solstice! And Happy Chanukuh! (See yesterday's post for more details.)
It's still fairly warm today (close to 60 degrees), although the forecast is calling for much colder temperatures by Monday (the low 40s), but then it looks like it will be warming up again by Christmas day. So, as usual, Ocracoke is not likely to see a white Christmas (unlike much of the rest of the country). In the meanwhile, Ocracokers are excited about the Christmas holiday, even if it will probably be rather balmy.
We hope you've gotten most of your shopping done and will be able to relax and enjoy the season.
