Friday Morning

Ocracoke continues to be quiet. An occasional walker or jogger passes by; cars are parked on every small rise throughout the village, silent reminders of the impending storm.

Clouds moved in overnight, but they are barely moving. With only a slight breeze (maybe 2-4 mph) trees are almost still. But I can hear the ocean getting restless.

I heard last night that water was coming up closer to Highway 12. I haven't been to the beach yet. After breakfast I'll take a look.

    Yes, my friend, the ocean is getting "restless", as you say. I have been looking @ the Ocracoke Airport web-cam....the ocean surf is kicking up.

    Philip, do stay safe!!!!! This is such an unique powerful and extremely large.

    I just had a long, emotional prayer asking God to watch over all who are in the path of Irene.

    Thank you so much for the updates. People may think it is all so exciting, but I wish Irene would be blown out to sea and spare the USA. So much damage to the islands south of the states.

  2. Thanks for the updates; you are on our minds here in Ohio. I'll keep checking your blog today.

    Stay safe, we are praying for everyone there. May God's grace sustain you during this storm. May you find peace during the turbulance knowing that our God is stronger than this hurricane.

  4. I hope, more than anything, that you all stay safe and come out of this unscathed.

    Good luck tonight and tomorrow! You'll be in our thoughts here in Indiana.

    Thinking and praying for all of you on the coast. Hope Irene doesn't come to visit that little piece of Heaven on Earth.
