Hurrican Dorian and the Hunting Scene Persian Rug

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.

You can read the entire story of Hurricane Dorian and the Persian rug in our Ocracoke Newsletter:

    So glad to hear it was saved! The pictures and details of the cleaning process were very interesting. Is that a current picture of your house? I was wondering about the platform rocker from the Ariosto. It looks like it is there on the rug. Am I correct? Hope things are getting back to "normal." You are all still in our thoughts. #ocracokestrong! Marie from PA

    1. Marie, the platform rocker is a reproduction of the Ariosto chair that my father made in 1974. My son now has the original rocker.

  3. Thanks for the clarification, Philip. And how did the Cool House fair?
