Hatteras First Effects of Joaquin
I don’t know if it was a really low tide this morning, but I didn’t think it was going to be too bad this afternoon.
Was I ever wrong…
It was like someone threw a switch and the ocean just started SURGING.
I took my kids with me to photograph the over wash.
These photos were taken at high tide.
The swell from Joaquin is supposed to peak sometime tomorrow.
The next couple of high tides are going to be pretty bad here in Buxton.
I might venture up to Rodanthe tomorrow morning to see how things are up north.
Keep all of the FOLKS in your prayers that are being affected by this storm.

Yes, I take my kids with me to document storm coverage when it’s not too bad yet. Though she is smiling in the photo, it’s been a good way to teach them about storms and their seriousness.
Ok, we do our best to stay safe. Jackson and Kenzilla running from wave at Outer Banks Motel.
