Still peaceful....that's good!:)
thank you for the update! so happy to read all your posts, just be sure and keep yourself safe!
Do you have any idea how many folks are staying? Do you gather together or wait it out at each individual home? Thinking positive thoughts for you and all of Ocracoke.
I have full faith that Ocracoke will weather this storm rather finely. But I'll also second what Jan replied to a previous post. If y'all need manpower afterwards, let us know. I'm sure I am not the only one who has a tool box, tent, and an approaching three day weekend. Stay safe.
I remember riding out a couple of big storms on Ocracoke in past years. The first was in 1975 and I was sleeping in a tent. That wasn't any fun at all. The second time, though, it was exciting -- which means nothing horrible happened to us. In that spirit, I hope you find Irene exciting, but nothing more.
Was thinking that your updates are something like the digital age equivalent of the markings on the kitchen wall of the Hurricane House. Thanks for your updates, and stay safe!
Philip... for those wanting to know more can you direct them to https://www.facebook.com/OcracokeIrenethanks.. Warner
We have only been to Ocracoke twice but love it there. Thinking of all of you and sending positive thoughts your way!
Phillip, Thank you for your on-going commentary. As a part time resident and home owner it is great to feel like we are there at least through your words and pictures. Praying it is "smooth sailing" with minimal clean up for all! Take care, Corky Lindstrom
Phillip, May God grant you all safety as you ride out the storm. We all watch with nervous anticipation as the storm approaches. We'll be praying for your safety.OcracokeFan

It is not God it is science. Phillip stay safe and good luck.
Thank you so much for the pictures and updates. I will be tuning in throughout the night. My prayers are with you all. Take care, Tammy
Sending prayers from Missouri.I hope you enjoy a great storm with no damage. (((God has the whole world in his loving arms!)))
They said a storm surge of 6 to 10 feet. You might want to stay on the top floor of your house.P.S. Please take our kneeboard with you so it doesn't get washed away.
Philip,Thank you for taking the time to keep us updated on our beloved island, when you have so much to do and think about. Know that many are praying that the protective, merciful hand of God will keep you all safe and sound. You'll be in our thoughts all night long and into Saturday.
