Out And About Photos Before Hurricane Irene Arrives

Veronica and I decided to take a ride to see what businesses had been boarded up to protect them from Hurricane Irene.
I apologize up front for the quality of some of the photos. They were taken through rainy windows, between the movements of the wiper blades or out of the side windows.
Our area was pretty desolate with few cars on the road and only one convenience/gas station that just reopened as we were taking a photo of their boarded up business.
Here are some of the sights that we saw while driving around before Hurricane Irene arrived here:

First stop was at the Ramada Inn. This is where we were thinking about riding this hurricane out. This is also where the Weather Channel personnel have set up shop along with numerous other news trucks from around the country. There were quite a number of satellite dishes on these various trucks. The vehicles below are carrying fuel on top of their vehicles. The fuel is for the generators used on the satellite news trucks








Below is Five Guys Burgers that is all boarded up


Below is Taco Bell


Burger King is below
Slowest and emptiest 7/11 you will ever see




This is Veronica's store. Really nice board job wouldn't you agree?


Various houses along the ocean front road and various other locations











Even the Colington Fire Department got boarded up
Not sure how well this mobile home on stilts will fare during this hurricane.







Below is the Kill Devil Hills Post Office
