Well, we survived Hurricane Isabel with no injuries or property damage, though it did get a little scary for a while. Some neighbors lost trees (and one might lose his house due to a fallen tree), but we just lost power. Then again, “just” may not be the right word, considering how difficult life can be without electricity.
Jason took it all like a trooper, and if nothing else we have a story to tell him when he gets older. We went ahead with our trip to Duck, NC as planned, and found everything there okay, though it was Thursday before we were allowed to venture into Nags Head and take a look around. We had a great time at the beach and Jason enjoyed being spoiled by all his adoring relatives.
