Vacationers to the Crystal Coast say their visit has been extended a few days because flights to the Northeast have been canceled due to all the snow up there.
For Kathy Sobon of New Jersey that meant she was able to enjoy the rare snow that fell overnight at Emerald Isle.
The white stuff sprayed rooftops, blanketed the grass, and some of it even stuck to the sandy beach.
Much of the snow melted by about noon. There were no traffic related accidents due to the snowy weather.
