Episode Narrative A powerful winter storm struck North Carolina bringing a prolonged period of heave snow lasting from late Christmas morning through much of December 26th. Eight to fifteen inches of snow blanketed the region and prolonged cold temperatures allows road condition to remain dangerous in some areas for many days. Due to the holiday fewer than normal accidents and injuries were reported.
Event Narrative Four to six inches of snow fell countywide with the heaviest amounts recorded along and east of Highway 1 including Sanford. Many roads were impassible due to the heavy snow. A seven year old boy was killed while playing in the road as a car slid on the snow and ice striking the child south of Sanford.
