This Guy Rode Out Hurricane Matthew In The Middle Of The Atlantic!

The Frying Pan Tower is a Coast Guard Light Station 34 miles off the coast of North Carolina. It’s out of sight of land in 50 feet of clear blue Atlantic waters.  It may not have a spa, fancy dining or swimming pool, but this one-of-a-kind bed and breakfast in hurricane alley has everything guests need when they’re looking for solitude. The bed and breakfast has some of the comforts of home, including hot showers, electricity, wifi and a kitchen with stainless steel appliances.  Richard Neal, a software engineer from Charlotte, bought the surplus station when it was auctioned by the US Coast Guard in 2010. He decided to stay there for Hurricane Matthew and of course he videotaped part of his adventure!  If you’d like to stay at the Frying Pan tower it’ll set you back $500 a night, but that doesn’t include the boat or helicopter ride to and from the inn…and hopefully you won’t experience any hurricanes!
