Ocracoke didn't get devastating tornadoes, high winds, or damaging lightning strikes yesterday evening and night (like in Georgia), but we heard the thunder roaring through and the rain pelting the roof. This morning there are puddles in the roads, but temperatures have moderated (it's nearly 60 degrees as I write), and patches of blue sky are poking through the clouds (bright sunlight is streaming through my window at this moment). It looks like it will be a great day to be outdoors.
