From a NPS Cape Hatteras Seashore Press Release:

"Monday's unsettled weather in the area spawned a water spout off the
Coquina Beach area of Cape Hatteras National Seashore. The water spout
then swept across the barrier island and danced around the Bodie Island
Lighthouse before dissipating over land."

Wow! That's some serious scaffolding. Looks like Bodie is getting a real makeover.

If you and I were working that job there better be an elevator or a big old crane with a comfortable sling ------for you, :P not for me. :) Someone has to have ground duty so with great disappointment :^o I will volunteer. :roll:
