Who Said It Doesn't Snow in North Myrtle Beach?

North Myrtle Beach, and surrounding areas, got their share of the Holidays today. A storm system that blew down the eastern seaboard brought a wintry mix of rain and snow to the Grand Strand throughout the day. Our temperatures only reached the mid-30's, and the snow flurries lasted all day long. Though we had a full day of snow, there wasn't much of an accumulation to give us any great pictures.

Although not many people think of snow when they think of North Myrtle Beach, we do get a dusting of snow at least once a year; typically in January or February. It's very exciting when it does happen. Palm trees are covered in ice, and a blanket of snow lightly covers the beach strand. This is hard for many to imagine at a popular southern beach destination such as ours.
