About a dozen friends stopped by last night. We told stories, laughed, and carried on until about 10 o'clock. Most of us had completed the majority of our hurricane preparations and we just needed to relax and enjoy the company of friends. There is not a lot that needs to be done right now...just time to wait and see.
I will post updates as I hear or see anything of interest.
Many thanks to all of our readers for expressions of concern for Ocracoke and its residents. If history is any indication, Ocracoke will survive and recover from whatever Mother Nature throws at us. I hope I am correct. My house has been here for over one hundred years...and since the rehabilitation project it is sturdier now than it has ever been.
