FWIW, this past weekend was on the schedule for "Eggshells in the Outer Banks", at Camp Hatteras, Rodanthe, OBX. I arrived at noon on Friday to an area about 23 miles above the campground, to find the road sealed by police. High tides had overtopped the dunes and washed great amounts of sand and water just after the bridge.....and south of Rodanthe, as well.
Despite hopeful announcements by NC DOT, it was clear that they couldn't get the road clear by late Friday or midday Saturday. I ended up turning around and driving a long 550 miles home to PA.
According to later newscasts from the area, NC DOT managed to open the way north at 10 PM Saturday night....but wasn't making promises it would stay open after the next high tide. I haven't recieved news since.
This is a real loss to all who planned and organized the Rally
, to a beautiful campground, and to all who were planning to attend.
