Memorial Day = Memory Day 5/28/18

Memory day

Greetings from the Outer Banks on a beautiful Memorial Day.  The weather has been perfect for whatever outdoor activities you wanted to do all weekend and the unofficial start of summer has arrived.   With all of the fun family summer activities it is easy to forget that this isn’t just a holiday weekend where we get an extra day with our families.   This past week a letter to the editor from a veteran put it in great perspective for us here at Everything Outer Banks by saying we should rename this day – Memory day.

Lighthouse looking – Memory Monday 2/12/18

Good day from the OBX!   It is a very warm, but a little wet day here at the Outer Banks today.  We had record setting temperatures yesterday (74 degrees is February!), and it really makes us look forward to the arrival of spring.  Today’s Memory Monday photo gives us a good example of two other types of weather we experience.   Lighthouse weather and hurricane weather.

Wedding on the Beach – Memory Monday 2/5/18

Good Monday morning from the cool Outer Banks.  We hope you were satisfied with the results of the Super Bowl last night and looking forward to a great day. Sorry to the Patriots fans, but we are sure Philly fans are flying high today.  What a great game if you did not have a rooting interest.  We know that doesn’t soften the blow for Pats fans, but it was entertaining.  For whatever reason, and in one of the worst transitions…..we thought it would be a great day to share pictures of a wedding on the beach!.  Sorry, that was really bad.

Storm Warning – Memory Monday 11/27/17

We are all a little bit excited around here because this week marks the official end to the Hurricane season (11/30 is the official end to the season).  This has been one heck of a year in terms of named storms and we were very fortunate to have gotten through the storm season unscathed.   We had one minor scare in September, but overall the Outer Banks did very well in 2017 in terms of named storms, but we are glad to see it go.

Cute Kid: Memory Monday September 18, 2017.

Greetings from the Outer Banks on this Memory Monday.   We start your Monday off with a cute kid on the beach this week.

Keep a good thought for us this week as we all wait and watch anxiously for the passing of Hurricane Jose.  Forecasts take the big boy storm off of our coast by a few hundred miles, but we are experiencing some clouds, breezy conditions and some off and on rain today.   Enough weather to chase everyone off of the beach and for the red flags to be flying on the dunes today warning swimmers to stay out of the water.  Let’s hoe this is as bad as it gets with regard to the weather this week.
