This photo was taken from near the corner of N.C. Highway 12 and Water Plant Road looking across Silver Lake. This snowstorm dumped nearly two feet of snow on Ocracoke during a massive blizzard that affected the east coast. Even if Ocracoke had a salt truck it would not have been necessary, the snow only lasted a few days. The most snow Ocracoke has received in a single event since this storm was about seven inches. See if you can find out from the locals when this blizzard took place.I can't wait. When was this blizzard?
