Will lightning strike twice?

Just booked a week in Nags Head September 12th-19th about a year after Hurricane Dorian. Even though I really enjoyed our recording setting travel time of 6.5 hours from PA and no traffic on the roads coming down that Sunday afternoon I would really prefer and uneventful week weather wise lol

Hope you get it!

I got kicked out of Corolla one year and booked in another village for that same time the following year and no worries at all. I'm going to think the same thing will happen for you!

I've been so lucky. I've come down 22 out of the past 25 yrs. 21 Sept trips, 1 in Oct., and only Isabel ran me off. I cant imagine it happening multiple times!

We got evacuated two years ago day one and didn't make it down at all (from PA) this year....so yes, lightening does strike twice. We aren't going for a third try, but good luck to you!

I'm looking into a third party insurance this time around. Its one we have used on many cruises. They have a cancel for any reason policy and you get back 100% of your cost, just need to find out how expensive it is

when I was a young girl we always went around my sisters birthday July 1st with no troubles whatsoever, My hubby and I were married early September so we decided to go then every year BUT after bad weather, storms and some hurricanes we switched back to summer. Less traffic wasn't worth it. I guess hot/humid won over crappy surf conditions. but back then the prices in summer were reasonable. my daughter even knows because she was a bit upset when I booked a mid August week. she knew my "rule" but my son in law got a new better job so I had to push back the week for his paid time off. ALWAYS buy trip insurance. it saved me with Hurricane Sandy damage which my daughter remembers because it ruined her surfing trip with the locals. too much debris in the water etc,...our ocean front rental was too heavily damaged. (the owners never did rebuild the bottom floor)
