Yesterday and the day before, it rained...and rained. The skies were gray and overcast, the wind picked up Tuesday night, and large puddles have accumulated around the village.

I took this photo Wednesday morning from my pizer. Even on a dreary day Ocracoke village is charming.

    Pouring down rain in Person co, NC, too; however, your view in the rain makes NC Mainlander want to walk down beautiful Howard Street!
