An ongoing reverence to the weather events that shape the daily lives of folks that live in Northeastern North Carolina.



Governor Pat McCrory briefed citizens from the State Emergency Operations Center Wednesday morning on the response to last night's snowfall across the state.
I would like everyone to think about what our First Responders have been through in the last 96 hours.

Streets have standing water in all the normal places following a heavy early morning rainfall so please allow for delays in employees arriving for work this morning.

Hatteras Island is not accessible due to multiple areas of overwash on Hwy 12 north of Rodanthe from Hurricane Irene.
Earlier I posted the projected path of Hurricane Irene, and openly prayed that the monstrous storm would pass farther east. It did not.
What may be the worst hurricane in the last 56 years (since Hurricane Hazel in 1954) has released its horrendous grip on the county I call home - Beaufort.

Beaufort County will open shelters to house folks evacuating from low lying areas due to the imminent impact of Hurricane Irene.
This could be good news for the Beaufort County / Pitt County / Craven County region. Only hours earlier the storm's track would have put the eye passing just east of Belhaven in eastern Beaufort County, North Carolina .

Another wildfire sparked by lightening, on June 19, 2011, has affected North Carolina. The wildfire in Pender County's Holly Shelter Gamelands, Juniper Road and County Line Road, and 8 miles North of Topsail is continuing to burn out of control.
Containment of the fire has been slowly increasing, although it still holds a potential threat of growing, yet again. In little over a month, the Pains Bay fire has gone from 80% contained and having effected 25,678 acres to now being 95% contained and has almost doubled.
It's that time of year again for North Carolina, hurricane season. The time of the year when tropical cyclones form in the Atlantic Ocean is from June to November peaking in early September.
