12′ Seas at Avalon Pier in Kill Devil Hills.

We certainly dodged a bullet on that last storm that came through, and not just the Outer Banks but a lot of our neighbors to the north as well. A little bit windy, some falling temperatures, even a flurry yesterday morning which had all the kids thinking school would be at least delayed if not called off. No such luck for the kids—school opened on time and everyone got there safely.

Farther north, of course, things were much more serious, with near hurricane force winds, plummeting temperatures, 2-3’ of snow and damaging seas in New England. But the fear of everything from Philadelphia to New York City being buried under record snowfalls never did materialize.

We’re not completely out of the woods yet on the Outer Banks. Seas are running at 8’-12’ and are predicted to stay that high through the night.  There may be some overwash on the Beach Road, especially on the north end of Kitty Hawk, although the dune line in front of Ocean Boulevard that owner Donny King anchored with Christmas trees, seems to be holding quite well.

It’s enough to make a person dream of summer. Rather than dream of soft sand, warn sun and beautiful waters, take the first step toward making the dream a realtiy. Call us at Brindley Beach Vacations at (877) 642-3224 and let’s pland your vacation together.
