Tropical Storm Nicole from Radio Island - September 30, 2010

Wind and rain ALL night and ALL day!! Actually too much wind and rain to take good photos. Waves in the inlet and birds are struggling to fly...just saw a flock of pelicans just "floating" without trying to move their wings. Waves crashing at the south end of Piver's Island. It slows up, then starts again. Seems like it's never going to end...I'm getting seasick :) David Sobotta in Swansboro/White Oak says they are up to 15.5 inches of rain, 12 inches in less than 24 hours, and , of course, it's still raining.
