SnOBX 2018: Pictures of Outer Banks transformed by snow

OUTER BANKS, N.C. – One of the most popular summer destinations for Richmonders was transformed under a heavy blanket of snow during a winter storm that moved along the coast, bound for Maine.

Though rain mixed with the snow in the Outer Banks, making snow totals lower than the 8 to 10 inches of accumulation in Hampton Roads, pictures posted on social media reflected a substantial snowfall around beloved tourist spots. This snowfall isn’t as heavy as the storm that hit the Outer Banks in Feb. 2014. Back then, numerous areas reported more than 10 inches of snow, with one picture showing 12 inches accumulated in Nagshead.  New Bern, just south and west of Pamlico Sound, also reported some record-breaking snow in 2014.

Look at the frothing sea and snow-kissed sand.

This shot of snowy downtown Manteo looks like it could be turned into a puzzle.

Walking on snow…yeah…don’t it feel good?!
