    I'm here in the Outer Banks of North Carolina and this storm is packing a serious punch for being so far out in the ocean.. We've already seen 20 ft plus waves.. 57 mph gusts.. Everyone stay safe!

    PS- My power has blinked twice now! :-(

    Be safe, I see it has already snaped trees in Florida and it hasn't even hit ground yet. Good Luck and I hope you have everything you need! I'm watching the news every chance I get. I'm hoping it will stay at sea and steer away from land.

    they think they're being stoic.

    i love ocracoke. there's a restaurant there that serves these humungous crab legs and the best crab cakes i ever had.

    i also have a breakfast place i love in nags head.
