Arrived Safely At Our Hotel

Veronica and I finally made it to our hotel in Williamston, NC.
Williamston is about 100 miles East of our home.
Needless to say, there was a lot of traffic heading out of tow.
At the hotel we met another couple that are from Rodanthe, which is up Highway 12 on the road to Hatteras.
They too were at the hotel because of Hurricane Earl.
We will be keeping track of Hurricane Earl and the damage that it is causing watching the Weather Channel.
I am concerned that we will lose electricity for a long time...means everything in our fridges and freezers will be lost.
And then there is always the concern about wind and water damage to the place.
We have been through a category 1 hurricane a few years back, when we lived in Virginia Beach and it was a mess...mainly a lot of water on the roads. We lived about 10 miles from the ocean back then.
With this hurricane, we are talking a category 4. No telling what we can expect upon our return home.
A friend of ours called us and said that he counted about 50 utility trucks heading towards the
Outer Banks and I am sure that more will be on the way.
Here it is mainly cloudy...no rain or real wind as of yet.
More updates to come.
