Leonid Meteor Shower

I understand that there is to be a meteor shower tonight. A welcome relief from rain showers!
The new moon promises dark skies. So if it isn't cloudy, we should get a show. Best viewing according to my source will be just before dawn. Happy viewing!

The waters are receding. But Highway 12 is br0ken.

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is a transcript of a letter written in 1949 by a visitor to the island. You can read the letter (which provides a glimpse into Ocracoke life sixty years ago) here:


  1. Bill -

    I was wondering if any homes were damaged there on Ocracoke. We have a mortgage loan scheduled to close on Friday and don't know if we need to hold off. Thanks! Diane deVries

  2. I've not heard of any damage to homes. I hope that's the truth.
