Saturday afternoon or Sunday, I'm eager to go. It all depends on what th latest forecast & wind reports show.

The water temp at Jeanette's pier yesterday morning was 86F !!! The site is on the ocean in Nags Head close to the house we rent. No wonder Florence has such power.

I can do mornings either day. The rest of the time, I'm listening to moredownhaul's favorite music genre. Speaking of which, funny screen cap from the other day.

I hope to be at VP around 9:30 - 10 tomorrow UNLESS the consensus is to go to Vann's Tavern.

The forecast is for North wind tomorrow, so if it picks up, I plan on sailing at Van Pugh.

Re: Sunday, Monday, 9/16 & 17, Maybe?

BTW - The Hatteras 3 day history shows about 4 inches of rain and winds topping out at 40-60 so that's not good, but could have been a lot worse. 30-40+ is not a big deal for that part of OBX.

Looking at the 3 day history for Nags Head, all I see is about an inch of rain, and winds of 20-mis 30s. Just an ordinary day.

Of course, none of this describes the what a storm surge might have been. I've not seem much from the traffic cams I've looked at.

I've seen nor'easters that put more water on 12 than the hurricane did (and stronger winds). The central and northern part of OBX appear to not have gotten hit badly. South of there, though, is a very different story.

We arrive Oct. 6 for a two-week stay in Nags Head and can report back. Before the web cams went out, Hwy. 12 overwashed on Hatteras Island. The Sound overflowed through Frisco, but as you said, overall little damage reported. I biggest cost may have been from the evacuation.

I plan to sail at Van Pugh this afternoon.

Sailed this afternoon on Lake Chatuge by the dam for about 3 hrs. Sub 10mph NW winds.
Only saw one (1) boat during that 3 hrs

Flat Water Fun

The S2 is working well since we got the daggerboard freely moving. ( thanks CV & CP )
