That is the story of Tropical Storm Emily. It has disappeared. The tropical weather page from WeatherUnderground shows no activity right now.
Which means I'm going to Ocracoke. Just for a quick visit. But any trip to Ocracoke is a good trip.
Sometime Sunday morning I'l be crossing the tortured shoals of Hatteras Inlet on the Hatteras to Ocracoke ferry. No Spartina, no sailing. But I'll visit some friends, have a good meal or two and enjoy one of my favorite islands.
I can't wait.
