Winter Garden

This cold snap has left Fiddler Dave's garden looking pretty sad. About half of his seedlings were lost in the first freeze. Before this last freeze, he was able to build a couple of areas that could be covered. He also rigged up lights to shine in those areas during the night to warm up the plants inside. Hopefully his efforts will pay off and we can enjoy homegrown greens throughout the winter.

On another note, the Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Department is being praised by everyone this morning for efficiently and successfully putting a house fire out last night. I'll write more when I have more information.

    Can you tell us what street the house was on? Thanks

    Praying no one was hurt. How frightening! I will be most anxious to hear which house it is.

    Who? What? Where? Apparently, I slept right through all the excitement. Again.
