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
