Though the weather outside certainly is frightful, we’ve got some great online resources for you to explore to keep your mood delightful. Here are four suggestions:

  1. Our This Day in N.C. History Project tells some of most interesting (and bizarre) tales from our state’s past – from Earl Scurggs to the original Siamese Twins, there’s a story for everyone. And if you’re more of a visual person, our This Day Pinterest board tells those stories in images
  2.  NCpedia’s awesome collection of articles on weather
  3. Great historical footage from the State Archives on YouTube dating from the 1930s to the 1960s. Videos range from Terry Sanford speaking on civil rights to more than two hours of black-and-white footage from Durham
  4. Photos of the snow through the ages. You can see some from the State Archives here and from our other historic sites and museums here (search: snow)

Enjoy the weather, and stay warm!
