Run Forest Run!


About noon yesterday, my weather guy told me that Irene's path was right over my house.  (Well he almost said that.)  If you saw Anderson Cooper at Atlantic Beach or updates from there, that's my beach.  Pine Knoll Shores and Emerald Isle are all beaches connected to each other.  I'm an Anderson Cooper Fan but to have CNN in your home town is never a good thing.

 I called Terry at work to tell him we needed to get out of Dodge.  I went from "Staying" preparations to "get in the car right now and run" preparations.  He got home about 1pm and we were on the road to Raleigh by 2pm.    We stopped a little east of there and spent one night.  This am the power went out so we are in another hotel south of there.  The only thing we forgot was a big one.  We didn't unplug the computer or the TVs.  Oops

We will go home in the morning.  Cross your fingers for us.  Irene was not as bad as predicted so maybe we are going to be OK

I am so glad you checked in. I missed Anderson Cooper, but have been watching the weather channel on my computer. I sure hope everything held up for you. I am also glad you decided to leave, smart move. Fingers crossed that everything is OK for you when you get home.

Wow, didn't know that was your beach when I was watching Anderson C last night. Stay safe, be well, and keep us informed.

Maybe your power went out so you don't have to worry about what you didn't turn off! Let us know how you find things when you get back.

I hope you and yours are safe and that things return to normal with only stories of excitement left behind.

Thank you all for your well wishes. We are packing up at the hotel and are headed home. Hope we have stayed dry. We've seen a lot of flooding in Morehead City, right next to us. Cross your fingers for us.

Wow, your area seems to be a regular target. We were in Morehead City (to enjoy the Sanitary Fish Market) when Charlie hit a few years back . Hope you and your neighbors have had no flooding or damage from Irene.
