Dave Bissonette has been watching news reports and online video links hoping to get a view of his home in New Bern, North Carolina. Bissonette and his wife Kathleen waited out Hurricane Florence with family in Michigan last week. The native of Phlox, Wisconsin says he’s feeling a bit better from what he’s seen and heard from the area.
Dave Bissonette has seen some lighter moments in the photos from the flooded town. Bear statues set up around New Bern for businesses to decorate and later sell to raise money for charity have been turning up in unusual places.
The Bissonette’s are planning to head back to North Carolina tomorrow after a stopover in Pittsburgh, where they have friends and family.
