I know this doesn't compare with the snow in Boston (and many other places) this year, but I thought our readers might like to see two vintage photos of a major Ocracoke snowfall that occurred in the first couple days of March 1980. The storm dumped about two feet of snow on the island. The temperature was way below freezing, and the power went out.
The first photo is of Berkley Manor, taken from NC Highway 12.
The next photo was taken looking the other direction. You can see the lighthouse in the distance.
