Californians that are loathe to think of us leaving our home state will find amusement in the irony of this news release. Yesterday, the same day that we booked our tickets to check out Wilmington, NC, Beaufort, SC, and Charleston, SC - North Carolina was hit with deadly storms. "At least six dead as storms pound NC". Obviously we are sorry to the families that lost loved ones. And we will still be checking out the Wilmington/Carolina Beach area Dec 11-16. Tornado, or no tornado.
