Don't know where it is , exactl...

I'm kind of a retard when it comes to the web; way behind the curve. But I think this is a workable link to some photos of what Ophelia sent us for a little while, anyways, if ya ever wonder what we get in the way of waves here in N.C.

Cheers

Ophelia sent up some nice, groomed swell on her approach up from Florida, then just stalled on top of us, got stronger, and beat the shit out of us here for a couple of days. Just a cat 1 tho, so, no biggie.

hurricane Ophelia

OK, heading to south-facing beaches again today. She's getting close, mandatory evacuations will soon be in effect. Not sure we'll be able to slip in. Have things here boarded up and squared away.

9/16

My sphincter's still not back to normal. Some of these nutcases/victims are either dead now, brain dead, or quadraplegic. Mostly young...
