The beach at Kitty Hawk on a very sunny, hazy day. These steps hanging from over the top of the barrier dune give you a pretty good idea of what storms do to the beach on the Outer Banks. Generally speaking, Nor’Easters are worse than hurricanes in that regard because they take so much sand away with their constant grinding wind and surf.
I have an ulterior motive for posting this. I’m hoping that through osmosis, this might trigger some better weather. Hey you do what you can do right? Eastern North Carolina has been blasted for the better part of two days now by wicked storms including quite a few tornadoes. Lots of folks have been devastated and many growers have lost their livelihoods; strawberry growers in particular. In that regard we’re quite blessed. Hope better weather is greeting you this afternoon. Thanks for the look and have a great evening.
