Sun Comes Out And Melts Most Of The Snow

Belhaven In Beaufort County was one of the locations that saw several inches of snow early Thursday morning.

The official snow total was 3.5 inches. Most of the snow melted away by late in the afternoon, but people enjoyed it while it was there.

Employees at Gingerbread Bakery at O'Neil's snack bar say they don't mind the snow because it's been good for business. Melissa Alligood says, "It's been crazy today - people have not stopped coming! They've been coming in all day, left and right since 6:00 o'clock this morning."

Pitt County didn't see quite as much snow. In Grimesland there was about half an inch. Nevertheless, parents and kids spent the early morning outside playing until it all melted away.

Craven County had just enough snow that it closed school for the day. While people were out enjoying it while it stuck around, students now have another snow makeup day.

    @hahahaha on Feb 10, 2011 at 10:52 PM: lol, I was thinking the same thing! I could see it now: "Dave (Jordan) it was an interesting occurrence today. We were here this morning and there was white stuff on the ground, but by the end of the day it was all gone! Clearly no one came by to steal it, seeing as we have not moved all day. The only conclusion that we can derive is that the ball of fire in the sky was responsible for the departure of the snow. We are currently contacting local authorities and experts at ECU to see if they can weigh in on this strange happening. We will have more at 11." bahahha
