RE: Dare County asks for end to social media combat ..




Thanks for posting. I mean to do this yesterday. Thumbs up


RE: Dare County asks for end to social media combat ..




BINGO on this... I suspect 90% of flaming here and other sites are from really good people... who for whatever reason just don't think long enough about what they are saying, and 99% of the time would never say it in a crowd.

Email rule applies... if you are going to flame on someone, do it on purpose with an expected result/consequence that you desire.... AND... then write it up, go home, sleep on it, and then decide in the morning if it is really worth sending. I saw lots of good people lose credibility over the years because they couldn't control thier email flaming... not to mention the quick fingers on a flaming unintended "Reply to All".... some of which were actually pretty entertaining.

Dare and Currituck both handled the situation poorly and they are tired of the backlash?

We all learned a couple of lessons here, NRPO's learned that we cannot always count on using our second homes in bad situations as we did in Sandy. And hopefully the Dare / Currituck learned that there is going to be backlash if you take away access to private property without reasonable notice. The Governors of Mass, NJ and other states handled this situation is a far better way.

Come on ish, comparing access after Sandy and access during the Covid 19 Pandemic.
Good Grief!

In Sandy my entire office in lower manhattan was shut down and my home just outside the city was without power for more than a week. I was very glad to be able to pack up my family and escape to our house in Corolla.

In Corona my entire office is shut down and I was planning to pack up my family and escaping to our remote second home in Swan Beach.

You cannot understand the parallels between the two situations? As a husband and a father my initial reaction is always protection of my family above all else.

No offence ish, but I think your second scenario is exactly what they wanted to prevent. A family from the NYC area (a major hot spot) traveling to their area against all the advice being given to not travel to other areas.

Is your primary home without power now? Are you not able to stay there? I get and understand that you just want to protect your family, heck given the option I might do the same, but I believe they are just trying to do the same.

Stay safe and I hope you're able to return to your patch of paradise soon.

John - I’m talking about my initial reaction here to the situation.
Since that time I’ve learned what the county’s position is and why, regarding hospitals, healthcare etc and I am accepting of it.

My entire point is that everyone has a back up plan and if the county would have been upfront with their reasons and given a reasonable notice all of this shifts how could have been averted. To go from “no one with proper documents will be turned away” to waking up the next day when we are ready to leave and finding out our access has been denied was a shock.

So as I said, Dare and Currituck should follow the examples set by NJ & Mass who both stopped people from going to beach communities and islands just by asking ! It worked and their was zero backlash, respect is a two way street

There is no fu to you or any other family. Please re read what I wrote. I’m speaking of my INITIAL PLANS, my go to my backup plans, and my previous actions during an emergency situation in my life.

We were already in Swan Beach the week before the announcement, and traveled back to NY / NJ for a couple of days to take care of business issues. Once we understood the reasons for the restrictions we fine with the message, but pissed off at the delivery and lack of reasonable notice.

Trust me when I tell you that there are many ways to access our house in Swan Beach without going over the bridge
