We are getting some wind and rain from the outer bands of Hurricane Sandy. It looks like the hurricane force winds will leave us alone, but we will have high tides and lots of rain to contend with. Unfortunately for all our friends in the northeast, it looks like you will have to deal with the brunt of Sandy. We will be thinking of you as she comes ashore north of us. Tie things down, move things up and get your flashlights ready.
For those of you who want to get an idea of what the weather is like here, check out this site with links to many of the web cams on the Outer Banks.
