Photo Gallery: “December Nor’Easter, Part 2” (18 Photos)

Hmmm… December on the Outer Banks is a crap shoot. One day it can be freezing cold, the next it could be 70’s and sunny. This December is no different. As I write this, the ocean is near flat, the weather is extremely mild and yesterday we had thunderstorms and lightning. A few days before that, a quick and powerful Nor’Easter that pumped some solid swell all over the Outer Banks. If you didn’t get a chance to view our first photo gallery, click HERE. Otherwise, continue on and enjoy 18 more photos brought to you by Photographers: Jon Carter, Mickey (2M) McCarthy, Bob Hovey, Daniel Pullen and Jordan Bartholomew.
