Why Is The Turtle Smiling?

This turtle is smiling because she just found out her favorite nesting ground on the Outer Banks of North Carolina is not going to take a direct hit from Hurricane Joaquin. There will be lots of smiles on the Carolina Coast this morning. Granted, they will be wet smiles as we are still getting quite a bit of rain, but the will be relieved wet smiles as Joaquin charts a course further and further out into the Atlantic.

I was hoping we might get a two-hour-delay for school this morning due to localized flooding of roads but the district safety team must not be too worried as the call hasn't been made. If the rains keep up like they are right now I wonder if there is a chance of an early dismissal before the flooding starts.

I must be off to work now. I hope all y'all have a great day.

And a happy good-bye to Joaquin.

Prayers have been answered. Good luck this afternoon with some of the flooding.

Glad it is missing you and hope no flooding occurs. Be careful driving

I think that would be an "Adios" for Joaquin! Let's hope he loses his oomph very soon.

It's great to know that the hurricane did not hit and cause any damage.

Joaquin may have decided not to come inshore but he certainly sent enough rain. You can read more about what all is going on there in my post on myLot. http://www.mylot.com/post/2848224/joaquin-changes-direction-but-throws-a-departing-punch-at-the

We've been spared the worst of the flooding but the coast is getting hit hard with rain.

We made out okay but down at the beach the rain is causing lots of problems.

Via con diablo to Joaquin as far as I'm concerned. The rain he sent our way is flooding my hometown.
