With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions.

You might find us anywhere around Bluffton with a camera and note pad, asking simple questions and looking for thoughtful answers. If we find you, we hope you will want to participate.

At the Belfair Clubhouse, we asked, “What’s the weirdest, most unusual item you ever took with you on a hurricane evacuation?”

Alan Coyne, Hilton Head Island: “For Hurricane Hugo, we used big black garbage bags to pack all the important things. When we got to the hotel in Columbia, I reached into one of them and pulled out a 10-pound bag of potatoes.”

Linda Stevens, Bluffton: “We don’t evacuate, because I’m married to the master of disaster organization, so there’s no need to leave.”

Terri Burns, Bluffton: “Nothing unusual, but we just take too much. We pack like we’re leaving for six months and we’re back in three days.”

Mickey Boisvert, Bluffton: “We haven’t evacuated yet, but if we did, I’d definitely take my sketchbook and all my art supplies.”

Pat Woodard, Bluffton: “I took a photograph that I had of my house so I’d remember what it looked like if it blew away. I still have it in my wallet.”
