Was it a big storm? Did it last long?

Nope. The weather had forecasted 2-3 inch hail and flash flooding. It rained slightly for about 15 min. I clearly know that meteorology is not a real science when used on the ocean. LOL

On our drive back from OBX we were going through VA and as I screamed and scared everyone in the car I saw a toddler age black bear coming upto the guard rail!!!!!! It was one of the most incredible things I have ever seen. This is NOT my picture but so close to what I saw. Bear was younger though (now that Im an expert on the subject)

It must have been awesome!!
We were near Mammoth Lakes one spring. It was late in the afternoon, we were parked near a coffee shop and a bear appeared not 10 feet away from the car. It looked at us, opened a trash container and started to rummage the content. It had such a human-like attitude! I took a pic but somehow the damned photo was lost (pre-digital camera days). My husband still laughs at me when I tell this to friends and says "Nope, there aren't any pics, it didn't happen!"  ::)

You have a long way home from OBX, haven't you OC1?

About 17 hrs. I was able to drive 12 but had to turn it over to my husband for the last 5. Seeing the bear made it totally worth it. I know what you mean about not having the pic available. There was just no way I could of safely pulled over for a shot.

Well, looks like I'll be going to Alabama this summer to visit my half sister while we wait for the foster care system to get us sorted. Oxford Alabama has only recently been more developed so there aren't really pretty pictures for me to link. But when I go I'll take some.

That's not true. You haven't been to my house.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.
