She’s Coming Our Way
Beginning tomorrow (8-25-2011) I may not be able to be do any posting due to the impending Hurricane Irene that intends to pound severely on Cape Hatteras Island in the Outer Banks, which is where we live during the spring and summer months. If you click on the image (map) to make larger you can see the projected path of the hurricane. We are located just east of Charlotte and Raleigh under the model lines.
At best we are able to leave the Island to go to a hotel inland, which may or may not be much help since it is not that far inland. The camper we have been staying in will remain here on the island which may or may not be in tact whenever we are able to return to the island. Commonly they close Highway 12 (the only way on or off the island by without taking a ferry) right before hurricanes hit landfall. It is not usually re-open for a day or so due to flooding. However, this time the highway may be closed for a substantial amount of time. This is one of the main reason why many don’t leave the island during hurricanes.
I will have my laptop and cell phone (and of course Hubby and Cici) to remain in close contact with my family, providing the connections remain in tack.
The storm can be tracked on the weather channel.
Everyone that may be in this storms path whether directly or indirectly to please do your best to stay safe. My prayer are with all of you.
