It did snow on the beach

Well it happened. After two years of preaching that we do not have snow down here on the coast, we got some snow.

Today, January 20, inauguration day, we got snow. All day I did not think it was going to happen.

When I got up just after 7 AM, the temperature was still 40F.

However, in three hours until 10 AM the temperature dropped to 34F.

By 11 AM the temperature had dropped another two degrees and we were down to freezing.

By 12:30 PM we had some light snow. It snowed most of the afternoon, but it was never cold enough for it to freeze on the driveways and roads.

The exception to that happened to be bridges, culverts, and shaded spots in the road.

The bridge to Emerald Isle was more icy than any of the roads, but they were sanding it as we came over for a visit.

It was very quiet over on Emerald Isle. It would have been a good night for peaceful meal if you could have found a restaurant open.

We were happy to have eaten over on the island last night when we had some choice with restaurants.
