Snow!!! In SC
We rarely get snow, but we got a light dusting last night and it's still coming down....yes, I know, this ain't snow compared to some of yours, maybe but it's pretty! Ya know, here in the Southeast, we rush to the grocery stores, buy out all the milk and eggs and bread if we even get a forecast for it. Our schools close and we actually take pictures of it.... LOL!

The same would happen if it snowed when I was in San Diego, the amount of car wrecks at least doubles when it barely rains there so closing the schools when the people are not used to it sounds kinda smart!

DH grew up in Charleston....he just loves snow!!! We moved to Summerville in 1999 for a short time and it snowed there about 10", first snow they'd seen in 11 years. And I lived in the North GA mountains as a teenager....6-8 foot snows every winter. We had a blast, sliding down the hills on trashcan lids and boxes!

I grew up in Florence, SC. We had several snows when I was a child, but never more than a couple of inches, and never more than one a year. I was an adult before I realized that it could actually snow during the day.

I'm actually thinking of moving to SC when I retire to get away from the snow! Myrtle Beach.

That much I can handle!
