Blog Cabin Survives Storm Andrea
I spent the last week in Atlantic, North Carolina on the site of Blog Cabin 2013 and boy was it a doozy! The cabin is finished and project manager Dylan is on site keeping the magic going until the keys get handed over to a very special someone. My very favorite spot in the house is sitting on the front porch, rocking and sipping a coffee, staring out at the wavy water.
While I describe the week, I’ll share some of my favorite sneak peeks at the textures in Blog Cabin…
In the meantime, we ran into a troublesome lady named Andrea the tropical storm. While we were shooting some fabulous videos for you to see behind the scenes of the finished rooms and features, the winds were coming up. The skies were getting grayer, and the clouds were looking a little ominous.
We raced around, tucked away all the treasures and pillows, flipped over the chairs and tables for safety, and got ready for Andrea to hit It rained and howled, and boy did the winds blow.
The house and property weathered the storm just fine. The water level did not rise, even though there were some uncharacteristic white caps on the Sound. The double-paned windows kept us from feeling or hearing the wind, even though we had a front row seat for the drama.
We lost power once but Dylan and crew had installed a generator that snapped right on and we got right back to making videos, which you’ll see soon.
What would you do first if you won Blog Cabin this year? Your shoes would be on this very door mat after a magic walk on the beach.
