It has been FREEZING in the Outer Banks since Wednesday, January 3rd. The temperature dropped in half Wednesday afternoon, it was reported the barometer dropped 59 millibars. Enter Winter Storm Grayson: a bomb cyclone that delivered snow, ice, winds of 40-50mps with gusts up to 74mph recorded at Jennette’s Pier. Crazy.
The result? OBX shut down for a few days. Temperatures hit record lows, snow and ice made the roads impassable, pipes froze, the tide crested at the dune line, Mike and Lisa wore socks and shoes. Nuff Said.
The good news: the temperatures are supposed to make it into the 40s tomorrow and will be in the 50s by the end of the week. We’ll thaw out just in time for the Wedding Weekend & Expo to come to town!
Wishing you Fair Weather (really) & Fond Memories,
Paisley & Pearl
