Normally I extol the virtues of Ocracoke -- sun, sand, surf, a wonderful community...and warm temperatures. Lately the temps haven't been so warm. I stepped outside this morning wondering if it would ever warm up. It's downright chilly again today. And breezy, too. I hung my hammock up last week, but haven't even been in it yet.
I did check the forecast a few minutes ago. It looks like we'll be getting up to the low sixties by the end of the week. I don't think anyone will be complaining.
