When they said "Hurricane" I thought of all the mess we had to clean up after "Irene" and hoped that this storm would stay off our coast. I know they are predicting a "big storm" when/if it makes landfall. I am praying that it stays out to sea.
This has been a good week. Husband and I took a whole day for ourselves and visited the Outer Banks. Last year when we went we couldn't get onto Bonner Bridge because of all the damage from Hurricane Irene, so it was good to see all of Hatteras Island this time. We rode across the little temporary bridge they had put up where the new inlet had been cut by the hurricane. The new sand that has been pushed up along Pea Island rose higher than our truck. It almost felt like Hyw. 12 had moved. This time there were new "Wings" stores and "Kitty Hawk Kites" stores. We had seen them on the northern parts of the Outer Banks, but on Hatteras it was more natural. My thoughts were, its getting more like Myrtle Beach.
I know the people out there are watching this storm closely. I hope it passes them gently and they don't have to start all over again. Me, I'm waiting for some more sunshine like we had the day I took the above picture.
