In Case You Missed It
It snowed! For most of the year, the Wilmington, NC, area has mild to hot weather. For 1 to 1.5 months, we have cold winter weather. This is enough to remind us why we live in North Carolina (warm weather!). Christmas Day Night (Saturday) it started snowing. It collected and then melted...and then collected again. Sunday through Monday morning, roads and cars were a bit icy, but the snow was gone by Monday afternoon. Last year, the snow stayed a few days allowing kids (and adults too!) to play in it. The temperatures this weekend are supposed to be back up to the 60s.
