Our Carolina Review Newsletter was recently mailed out and the electronic version is emailed today. Here are a few OBX news items that did not make the newsletter… It’s been rather mild on the Outer Banks this winter. I don’t remember seeing one snowflake so far and there has only been a handful of days where there has been frost on the ground. This relatively warm winter is not unprecedented. A few years back, our geraniums survived the entire winter on the front porch in Kitty Hawk.
Local are excited about the new bridge over Oregon Inlet. It opened just a few weeks ago. It’s been a long time coming to get this bridge. Locals have been talking about the need for a new bridge at least since the dredge ship hit the bridge in 1993. Having the new bridge open should help both business and real estate on Hatteras Island.
There’s also been quite a bit of talk recently about the First Flight high school basketball team. Their unique style of running and gunning helped them make it all the way to the third round of the state finals this year. Congratulations First Flight!
In our newsletter there are some articles about modern day shipwrecks and other things that wash up on Outer Banks beaches. There’s some good information about attracting and keeping vacation rental tenants and tips for getting a good paint job on your beach house. Of course, we always have our listings, a real estate update and some fun late winter/spring OBX events.
