Sunday in my Neighborhood

We had a rare event here in Wilmington, North Carolina, this weekend. A snow storm hit our area on Friday night, dumping between three and six inches of snow. Since we are lucky to get a dusting of snow every two or three years, three inches is a virtual blizzard to us southern folks.

The Yankees down here think we’re all insane “cute”. Everything closes down, and life comes to a standstill. Our city might have one snowplow, I’m not really sure. No one knows how to drive in the snow anyways; we are all too busy gaping at the sight of snow to be bothered with learning how, y’all.

Even though I had worked a twelve hour night shift and my feet were killing me, I just had to get out in this and take over two hundred a few snapshots. After all, it might be several years before I see any snow again, and I honestly forget how awe inspiring this stuff can be!

Wilmington is a beautiful city, rich in history and natural scenery. As a Wilmington native, I am so proud to show off my hometown. I love it so much that I have another blog called Wilmington Daily Photo. It keeps me busy posting a new photo of the Wilmington area every day. I hope y’all will check it out and see for yourselves why I think this place is so spectacular.

I chose these photos for Sunday in My City, a photo forum that has folks posting pictures on Sunday of their cities. I thought Wilmington NC should be included.
