My wife and I got up this morning at 6:30 a.m. to get our kids up and ready for school. I looked outside and saw that it was cloudy with the sun peeking out every few minutes…but nothing unusual. Then I turned on the weather on and it said we could see some flurries along with some high winds. Again, I thought nothing of it. We got the kids up and fed and left the house to take them to school which is about 10 miles away. We left house at 7:35 a.m. As we were returning back to the beach we noticed a few flakes beginning to fall. Within 20 minutes of leaving home the temperature dropped from 36 to 31 degrees. The wind started blowing a little harder and the snowflakes got larger and larger. By 8:30 a.m. some accumulation was beginning to show on the car and on the ground. Slowly the ground was beginning to become covered. While it did snow pretty hard for about an hour it began to slowly let up as the morning passed. By 11:30 a.m. the sun was out, the temperature began to rise and the snow began to melt. In all, I would saw we got a nice dusting of maybe less than half an inch. It was fun but wish the kids could have been home to play in it a little while. This is the second time it has snowed at Holden Beach in the last 3 weeks. However this is the most we have had in a good while. The snow at Holden Beach was fun while it lasted.
