Isaias Update, ‘Too Many Vowels’ Edition

NOTE: Some vowels have been removed from this report to achieve a thriving alphabetical balance.  This does not mean—and you should not construe—that this blog is managed primarily for consonants, even if they outnumber vowels 37 to 1.

The systm has been downgraded to a tropicl strm.  Although the trck has shifted farther to the west, OBX is now undr a tropical storm watch (indicatd by yellow n the map).

Chincoteague Auction Sets New Record

Not bad for an event that was cancelled, although the auction happened online.

Bidders paid a total of $380,000 this year, according to a report by Delmarva Now.

The ponies usually swim across the bay from Assateague Island (Virginia side) to Chincoteague but they may have been hauled by trailer this year.

The following video by Alyssa Equestrian shows them at the Chintoteague Volunteer Fire Company Carnival Grounds, where the auction usually occurs.
