Total assessment at Oregon Inlet Bridge not complete, but word is that it may not be as bad as first thought. Still no divers have been down to check piling integrity but a bucket boom truck has been doing above water assessments.

Tomorrow at 1:00PM the County Commissioners, the County manager and top DOT officials will be at the Avon Fire House for an update and hopefully some good news.

Ferry service has begun from Stumpy Point to Rodanthe and is on a two hour schedule from 7:00AM to 10 PM from Stumpy Point and 7AM til 7PM from Rodanthe. No visitors are being allowed on from Stumpy Point. Residents and essential traffic only! After essential traffic is loaded going from Rodanthe to Stumpy Point the ferry is carrying visitors off to head home space available.

Mail was coming through today via Swan Quarter ferry which means that they must think that egress and exit from Swan Quarter and Cedar Island may be  in place soon to get visitors to Ocracoke and Hatteras as done last year after Irene

Thanksgiving is whemn they say that work will be far enough along to let traffic south through Pea Island, but maybe I can add some better position on that area after tomorrows meeting.

We were within 1/2 inch

Frank & fran's was blessed this year after hurricane Sandy did so much to so many. We were within 1/2 inch having water in the shop, but we are dry and in great shape.

I do not know what the immediate future is for the many folks that want to visit our island. There is damage to the Oregon Inlet Bridge and the new clittity clack bridge at New Inlet as well as some sand on road and some roadway da...
mage but to my knowledge no new inlets to secure. We are hearing weeks before the road will be passible but without a complete assement we do know know anything definite YET!!!.

Until we know more and people are able to get here it will be a 9A-5P day at F & F and only Ginger and me at the wheel.

I will try to keep you updated as I get the info

Miss all of you
Frank, Fran and the crew
We were fortunate

Do not know when the road will reopen - problems at Oregon Inlet and the new clattity clattity bridge so opening of the road is in limbo - There will be emergency ferry service at stu7mpy point to rodanthe but right now it is essential vehicles on only. Cedar Island and Swan Quarter to Ocracoke may be an option but they have not begun service yet to my knowledge.

I will try to keep it on website as I hear progress
