Snow on the Dock

It took until the day after Christmas until it arrived, but we now have a dusting of snow here on the Crystal Coast.

We are making out easy compared to friends farther to the west in North Carolina and other friends scattered up the east coast.  Our relatives living near one of the original Styers' Mills in Yadkin County, NC seemed to be close to the epi-center of the North Carolina Christmas Day snow storm.  They got seven inches of snow.

We heard second hand from the son of a traveler that some of the worst travel yesterday was between Greensboro and Winston-Salem and then between Wilkesboro and Boone.

Our little dusting of snow is just frosting on the cake of Christmas. It is a nice holiday touch.  If the snow will hang around for a while, we might have some snowy beach pictures later in the day.
