Non-resident homeowners are finally being allowed on Hatteras Island beginning tomorrow. We’ll be able to see first hand the damage to the house, or hopefully, the lack of damage.
Unfortunately, it will be a long trip to get there. It will take about 4 hours to get to the ferry departure point. The ferry takes about 3 1/2 hours, and then a half hour drive from the arrival point to our house. Plus, as the ferries run only every 1 1/2 hours, and the departure lines expected, it could well take 12 or more hours just to get to the house.
Because of this, Scuba Man will be going alone. It would be too hard of a trip for the animals. Since we just found this out last night, it’s a little too late to arrange for a pet sitter. Plus, we don’t want to spend the money for one not knowing how bad the damage is and how much it will cost. We have a somewhat high deductible on our wind insurance.
Spoiler Alert – Serenity (the movie)
We watched the movie that takes place after the Firefly series ended. It’s called Serenity. I didn’t much like it. Although it does tie things up a little, there is still a lot left hanging. Plus, they kill off Wash. That was so sad! When that happened, I watched the rest of the movie with tears running down my face.
It’s football time in America! The first game of the season was last night, and it was awesome. A very exciting game! My boys, the Green Bay Packers won, which made it an even better game. I’m dragging a little this morning from staying up late to watch it. Why can football games start at 6 instead of 8:30 pm?
And finally, for all of my United States readers, don’t forget to fly the flag at half-staff on Sunday. It’s the 10th anniversary of the horrible 9/11 terrorism attack. Let’s show our pride in our country!!! Let’s show the world we will never forget!!!
