Snow is coming down and Things are looking Up!
Yes- It is snowing at Sunset Beach, NC! As I load the newest photos of the Bridge construction here at Sunset Beach, the snow is steadily falling on the island of Sunset Beach. The temperatures have been colder than usual and perfect for rarely seen snow at the beach, but we haven't seen the white flakes fall until tonight. We've watched the news, talked to family and even traveled to see snow for our kids' sake, but each time our temps drop, the rain stops....Until now. Because it is rare for us to experience the snow, to the majority of the locals and all of the kids, it's a beautiful sight. The clean, fresh look of a blanket of snow at the beach is gorgeous. Our local meteorologists say we might even get 2-4 inches, which is very rare for us. As beautiful as the past snow photos of our old Sunset Beach Bridge are, I imagine that tomorrow morning's snow photos will be different. The new bridge has taken major transformations in less than 30 days and the photos are a great timeline of the change. We spoke with the project manager of the bridge about these changes and they are on schedule for the Dec. 2010 completion date. I personally expected much longer/larger Span Beams to be used, but have since been advised otherwise. It's too complicated for me to explain, but so fascinating to watch.
Happy Valentine's Day to all and I will post some new snow photos as soon as I can. Of course, you can always see the webcam for immediate views of the snow falling & the bridge construction!
