Celia Meekins, right, hugs friend Bert Dobben, near her husband Roger Meekins, left, at the harbor in Rodanthe, NC, the day after the Meekins survived a house fire in the middle of Hurricane Irene.  "Happiness is being alive," Celia Meekins later exclaimed.  The Meekins were catching a ferry off of Hatteras Island to the mainland in Stumpy Point, NC, on Monday, Aug. 29, 2011.
