Hurricane Florence evacuees, The Geibel Family

As #HurricaneFlorence makes landfall this morning, our thoughts are with our neighbors along the Carolina coasts and surrounding areas.  Wilmington based family, The Geibel’s, chose the Town of Highlands for sanctuary from the storm.  We caught up with them yesterday at The Ugly Dog Pub where they were happily enjoying local fare and refreshments.  As first time visitors to our town, I asked them why they chose to come here.  Thier response was simple: “We just decided to head for the Mountains!!!”  Well said…lol!!!  Many of our accommodations still have availability for the weekend should anyone decide to echo the Geibel’s sentiments.  BE SAFE EVERYONE!!!
