An event that typically happens only once or twice a year, there is about an inch of snow on the ground on the Outer Banks of North Carolina this morning. Since we don’t really have any local salt trucks in the area, most Dare County schools are closed and many small restaurants and shops won’t be opening their doors for business.
Although no more snow is expected today, the forecast calls for continued wind gusts of up to 30 mph and temperatures that won’t eclipse a 30 degree threshold until Thursday afternoon. That means there should be snow on the ground till at least tomorrow morning.
Here’s a few photos we took this morning from several Outer Banks towns and along with the snowy pictures, there is a video of 7 to 9 foot waves crashing into Jennette’s Pier at 8:00 a.m.

The fluffy white flakes combined with sand and sea oats created a gorgeous scene this morning at Jennette’s Pier in Nags Head.
