When Hurricane Dorian struck I watched as tidewater poured over my fence, up onto my porch, and into my house. Shocked that the water had risen so high and so fast, I turned and saved the first things I saw...a small stack of VHS tapes!!! Then I stepped back onto my Persian rug. It was floating. Why hadn't I rolled it up and laid it across some chairs, I wondered. But it was too late.
For the next week I pondered how, or even if, I could save the rug. Then volunteers, a family who had been visiting Ocracoke for years, came to the rescue.
