Dear Family and Friends,
By the time you read this another day will have dawned on Ocracoke. Sunny. Warm. Clear skies.
As I write to you tonight, it is cool in the midwest. The windows are closed and I will actually toss on another blanket as Autumn begins to seep into our bloodlines.
I have been watching as the damage reports are rolling in. It is amazing that we know more than Philip or other folks on Ocracoke as their news sources are limited.
I am greatly saddened by the videos and reports of those folks around Ocracoke who are in such distress. With the road out, we can only speculate on what will happen to folks trying to get home...tourists with plans...or just getting supplies like milk or bread.
Time will bring stories with her, but in the meantime, there is great hardship ahead.
Here is a photo and a video that I could not stop watching.
