Three More Photos

I took these three pictures about 4 o'clock this afternoon. See 10 earlier photos on the previous post. We've had about 4 1/2" of snow so far, and it's still falling. Lachlan & Julian have been outside throwing snowballs.

As always, click on any photo to view a larger image.

    WOW!!! I have looked at your other photos a dozen times and can't get over those and here you send more amazing pix! Over four inches of snow on Ocracoke Island!!!!!! That has to be one of the biggest snows on the island in decades!

    Still no snow in Belhaven but my Mother-in-law says it's awfully cold.

    I am so excited for all of you! Wish I was there!

    Take care of your cough, Philip! Thanks for the fantastic photos. I've told so many folks to check out your web-site to see the photos for themselves!

    What fun!

    Well it's unanimous the pictures are wonderful...Oh wait a minute-guess you can't please everybody-your doctor 's not too crazy about them.

    Oops! Hope you wrapped up well when you walked around the island, Philip! :)

    But, getting those beautiful photos is for a worthy cause!

  4. There's 7 inches of snow on my back deck now, and it's still coming down!

    Summer visitor since 1997....I can't believe these shots! I live in PA and we expect such snowy scenes but for the OBX these are amazing. Stay warm and hope to see you and Ocracoke later on when it is WARM. :)

  6. Although a daily reader, I rarely leave a comment. These photos are so magnificent that I must say that they truely "capture" and convey an ambience. From some of the pics I can almost feel the wind whipped snow biting into my face as I stumble and slide down Howard Street.

    So far this winter, the southern states have recieved more snow than we have in Wilmington, DE. However, it is 13 degrees as I write this and the ground is sporadically covered with one inch patches of frozen slush.

    Also the biography on Sam Jones is excellent. It made for some quite enjoyable reading and I appreciate all of the work that went into it.

    Thanks Philip, good work.

    TTFN, Bear

  7. The serenity of Ocracoke when I visit is autumn is wonderful, but your winter wonderland makes me long to be with you NOW!!! Thank you for this blog! And I agree, Sam's story was great - thank you for another piece of Ocracoke history.
