Snow day brings beauty, fun to Beaufort County

While snow days can present treacherous road conditions, logistical headaches and unfortunate shortages of milk and bread, for a child, there’s nothing quite so magical. Love it or hate it, there’s also no denying that a freshly fallen layer of snow adds a unique beauty to the otherwise mundane scenes one passes by every day. With the kids out of school for the day on Friday, and a pure, white sheen on buildings and landscapes, Washington Daily News photographers and readers alike took advantage of the day to share a variety of beautiful Beaufort County snow scenes.
