Did hell freeze over?
Because this never happens.
Wait, that would mean that I think I live in hell.
Okay, but it’s still really rare for there to be any amount of snow here on the beaches of NC.
My very first year here, 10 years ago, as an uninformed former Pennsylvanian, I woke up one morning to what we Yankees call “frost” on the ground.
Even the most hopeful school-hating child in PA wouldn’t have bothered to check to see if there was a school delay.
So, I headed on in to teach.
Yeah, school was CANCELLED.
So, when we got 6 inches of snow here this past weekend, it was a huge deal.
I’ve never seen so many snowmen as were made this weekend.
I guess it’s because people around here don’t usually get the chance to make them. So, when there’s snow, everyone makes one.
Including right on the beach.
Here are Monkey and Bear, posing with some snowmen right out back of our house.
At first, it’s just a typical kids with snowmen pic…
But, notice what is right in the background!
