The state of Virginia experiences all four seasons. Cool Spring, hot Summer, chilly Autumn and cold Winter. Seasons are different in South Carolina. Alan and I are learning how different the temperatures can range in the Palmetto state.
November 7th arrived and we noticed people wearing colorful shorts and swimsuits. Children playing outside were sweating from the warmth and energy being exerted while riding bicycles. Cars being soaped and soaked in driveways made us think of summertime.
New friends have shared how temperatures won’t really change and get “cold” until January. Some folks even mentioned the cold will only last about a month. This is why we donated most of our winter clothing to charity before we moved from VA to SC.
Yet….we’ve been told we would become acclimated to the temperatures quickly. I didn’t believe that statement as I can definitely tell hot from cold.
I was wrong and admit my misconception about the SC weather. When we first moved here, I laughed seeing people wearing sweaters, coats and hats as the temperatures ranged from 60-65 degrees. Now, guess what? I am one of those people.
How quickly I adjusted to the “cold” in SC! This morning, temps are in the upper 50’s and the heater might be an option. 🙂 Or better yet, I will find those few sweaters in the back of the closet and wrap up nice and cozy.
Funny thing is Alan has not adapted yet and he thinks the temperatures are terrific. I guess I am becoming a South Carolinian before him. haha!!
Lately, the same question repeats to Alan, “Sweetheart, are you cold?” That lets him know I am cold. Just a friendly little question. 🙂
Life is great in SC. What’s the weather like in your area? Are you wearing a sweater or a swimsuit?
The Lord gives us beautiful seasons to enjoy. Each season is un. Pause and notice the glory of His wonders.
Have a blessed day and put on a sweater if you feel cold,
