    No road blocks…but plenty of pot holes…and they were here long before this storm was just a puff of wind out at sea!
    The infrastructure here remains without substance…but the sea shells are fine.

    No road blocks. If you want to get to the beach today, you’ll have no problems. It is, however, still very gusty as you would expect.

    There seems to be more, Meteorologist, per capita, in Southeastern North Carolina, than anywhere else in the world!! Be safe everyone and remember, if you can’t see the road, don’t drive through that, flooded, street!!

    My daughter and I want to come and look for sea shells. We live in the Piedmont area. Can we get through or are there road blocks? We are the adventurous types:)
