Reflections of Hurricane Irene in Sunset Beach, NC



Last night we encountered the most beautiful sky as the evening approached. I stood outside staring and reflecting in wonderment, how only a few hours ago the appearance was so contrasting.

Life, as we know it, moves so swiftly by us.

Was Hurricane Irene an awakening for some, a reminder...

Are we embracing life or just living it day by day?

We saw similarly colored skies here in the Raleigh area last night too. And when they're that color, that's always a great sign that the new day will be filled with sunshine. Glad you guys are all right and Irene is just a memory now.

Karen - Glad all is well with you after such a horrific storm.  We had some rain and wind here in Raleigh but for the most part we missed the storm.

Red sky at night, sailors delight!  Especially beautiful after the scare everyone was given.  Glad you're okay!
