Hurricane Earl petered out off the coast of North Carolina just before it hit, dropping from a behemoth Category 4 storm to Category 2. Now it’s down to Category 1 and headed north. Aside from some street flooding in the Outer Banks, it doesn’t look like there was much in the way of damage. Those of us a little more inland only saw some gusty wind and rain late last night.
Looks like North Carolina dodged the bullet this time. Even though it’s considerably weakened, I hope my friends up north do alright when Earl hits them this weekend.
