The sun returned and we were making plans to head out on Friday. Then late Thursday I saw a notice posted on Facebook that the ICW south of Norfolk was closed. Both the Dismal Swamp Canal and Albemarle-Chesapeake Canal routes were closed. If you follow my Facebook page, I did re-share the post on the closure. I tried finding confirmation that evening and wasn't able to confirm the closure until I called Robert, the lock and bridge tender at Deep Creek, the following morning.
