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:)

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!!

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.

Q: Hurricane Sandy: What can you expect?
A: Higher Home Owners Insurance rates for 2013…just because they can!
That means Wind and Hail rates too don’t forget. A double whammy!!
