Outer Banks

I left Jes and Rob's new house in Newport News on Sunday afternoon and took the long way back to Raleigh, down the coast to the Outer Banks. I got there pretty late, just after 7, but was still able to jump in the water for about an hour at Kitty Hawk. Before I crossed back onto the mainland, I stopped for some popcorn shrimp at The Dunes restaurant at Nags Head. Since I was swimming during the last minutes of daylight, I didn't get but a couple of photos.

So when will this blog get back to the weather? It will whenever there is something to talk about. Central North Carolina is in the midst of one of the driest summers on record, which means there has been nothing but clear skies to observe storms for the bulk of the past several weeks. I don't mind the break from having to worry about the weather, though. That said, with hurricane season in full swing, there may be some action coming our way in the next month or two. Currently a weak circulation off the coast is expected to develop into at least a tropical storm by next week, with forecast tracks all over the place from Florida to New England. North Carolina may get at least a glancing blow from whatever happens to form, which might mean another trip to the Outer Banks next week.
