Exploring the culture, food, and traditions of North Carolina
Friday Links – January 5, 2018
I hope everyone is having a great start to their year! I am already dreaming of warm spring days, and summer nights. I know, I know… but winter is my least favorite season. I can’t help it.
Here’s a few things that caught my attention this week:
The cold is having an effect on everything!!! NC Division of Marine Fisheries just closed speckled trout until June of this year, after the cold weather stunned and killed quite a large bit of the population as I understand it. Closures and proclamations like this can always be a polarizing issue, but I am glad that our state is looking out for the future population, even though it means I won’t be landing any big guys (like in the picture to the left) for a while!
And I’ll leave you with a video shot yesterday of my little coastal town in the snow! (My friends are the crazies doing the doughnuts in the car!) How cute is this? I love that my little southern town just had a blast in the freakishly unusual weather!
