WOW! I guess I was luckier than most as I got off Ocracoke on Saturday on the 7AM ferry to Hatteras. Actually I guess I was even luckier as I was able to drive all the way to Kill Devil Hill on NC 12 with no problems. Although I will say that the Ferry boat ride was definitely an "E" ticket ride! Considering there was a big wedding planned for Saturday that count of the stranded must be a big number. Hope all of you who are still stranded get home safe.
