Beaches Get A Good Dose Of Snow

People usually head to the beach for the sun, sand and surf. Monday people were out along the coast checking out the rare snow on the beaches.

Many people were out in Emerald Isle checking out the snow, including Carlos Baquedano. "it's pretty, white. All the sand is covered with snow. It looks very nice."

Mike Riedel took his dog to the beach. "Well, we're actually having a little fun - we went out to the beach, walked the dog - let him swim around a little bit, so he doesn't mind it either. It's actually pretty fun - we like it."

Monday's storm was a dream come true for many kids in the area, who spent the day outside. Savannah Farrington says, "It's really weird. I've been hoping for snow. Like this whole day. And then I opened my eyes and it was snowing!!"

Areas in and around Emerald Isle saw right around three inches of snow.

    The beaches needed a good snow. The nutrients in the sand were getting weak and depleted. Snow helps the ghost crabs and sea turtles to reproduce strong young and mole crabs love to frolic in the snow.
