North Carolina-White Christmas-December 25


North Carolina People, Places, and Things-December 25

I am the dad to five adult children. As they were growing up I attempted to remind them they were special and to implore them to learn something new. My goal was to do that daily.

In 2016 my goal is to learn something new daily on the people, places, and things that make North Carolina special. Everyday this year I am doing a post on what I have learned new.

Christmas has lots of commercial images that people are very sentimental about. One strong one is a “White Christmas”.

The largest snowstorm in history for the Southeast U.S. coast occurred just before Christmas 1989.  This storm broke all-time snowfall records in Wilmington (15.3 inches), Cape Hatteras (13.3 inches), Charleston (8 inches), and Savannah (3.6 inches).  Measurable snow fell as far south as Jacksonville and Tallahassee, Florida, and snow flurries were reported in Tampa and near Sarasota.

In Lumberton, NC we saw close to 10 inches of snow and we did have a “White Christmas”.

  1. The last time I passed through North Carolina, a teen asked me what it was like living in Canada and I made some off-hand comment about snow, assuming that they had never seen the white stuff before thinking they were too far south. She told me they had gotten some snow and I had thought she meant a dusting. Well apparently I was wrong!
