Dear Friends and Family,
I know you are waiting for a update on Philip and Ocracoke, and the truth is there is no update.
It has been a long week for me being in Indianapolis staying focused on my work, all the while keeping up with Philip and the news.
He sounded a bit weary when I last talked with him, but wouldn't you know he just wanted to hear all about my show!
I tried calling last night him several times last night and this morning. I talked with Amy and she confirmed the fact that all phone service is out on the Island.
The news that I know is all from Facebook and the Weather Channel. Unconfirmed report from Amy is that a new inlet has been cut by Rodanthe and the NCDT is working on establishing ferry service from the Bonner Bridge to Hatteras to get folks home.
No word on Swan Quarter. She also said Manteo took a hard hit. We have friends there with small businesses and know what a struggle this will be.
It is difficult being out of contact. Who knows how long that will be?
I realize I am not much help to all of you who love this blog, but I will drop a note now and then when I know information or just need other friends to talk to!
Thanks for all your love of the Island and the community that lives there.
