The "Fickleness" of Spring

Well "It" finally arrived on Saturday - spring that is. It has been a very long cold winter for Ocracoke and much of the East Coast and Mid West. We are so in need of the warmth and promise that spring brings. Spring is very fickle on Ocracoke. One day it's sunny and warm and the next day we're having a Nor' Easter. Being surrounded by water on all sides as we are ( we are an island afer all) we're cooler than the mainland in the spring and summer and warmer in the fall and winter. With the exception of spring that's not a bad thing. We had beautiful window open weather the end of last week. Monday it poured rain and yesterday was sunny, cold and it blew a gale! Today it's sunny, warmer, no wind and the weathermen are promising that spring will be here in earnest next week. We'll see.

This month's Ocracoke Newsletter is about "Ocracats" and was written by Pat Garber. You can read it here:


  1. Philip,
    Is something going to go on the lot where they are tearing down that old house now??

    I heard they're putting in a SUBWAY deli. Is that true?

    Maybe a McDonald's.

    How about a Hooters?

    Some comments are uncalled for.

    A franchise on Ocracoke would have to be some sort of sin, but I'm doubting we have to worry about that.
