Tropical Storm Danny is now a Tropical Depression, having been mostly absorbed by a low pressure system over North Carolina. We got a little rain last night (along with some thunder and lightning), but the system is now moving rapidly to the northeast. We are looking forward to clearing skies and a pleasant weekend.
Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is a small photo album with historic pictures, including the aftermath of the 1944 hurricane, the 1921 Ghost Ship of the Outer Banks, the 1935 wreck of the Nomis, the Island Inn, the Methodist Church, and the Wahab Village Hotel. I've added a short paragraph under each photo to help put them in historical perspective. You can see the pictures by clicking here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news082609.htm.
