Ordinarily I am the mom that prays for a “wind day” when the call from Dare County Schools comes across my phone to announce that they cannot, in good conscience, send the tiny children on the school buses with high coastal winds.

In an 8.6 mile stretch we have 5 major grocery stores. FIVE! This is a little tiny sandbar with a ridiculous amount of grocery options! That number doesn't even include Winks, Stop N' Shop and our international food markets. If you ask me, the big chains need a little friendly competition around here!
A few weeks ago I was at Harris Teeter in Kitty Hawk and couldn't find a single apple that wasn't bruised, moldy or wrinkled. Deflated, I walked to the strawberries and came
