Imagine our surprise when heavy snowflakes began falling yesterday in coastal South Carolina. We know all about snow from living in Virginia. Mountain snow, city snow…but….coastal snow? What????
Luckily, Alan and I kept some of our winter clothing when we moved from VA to SC in September 2017. You know…just in case. There would never be 5 inches of snow in Mount Pleasant SC! Or would there? We were proven wrong yesterday.
Just like in VA, grocery stores were packed the day before the storm. Schools announced closings, road closures and emergency details kept us alert and up to date on the situation of this record breaking storm.
Staying inside and reading good books was a great way for us to relax and be safe during the storm. A few folks were outside enjoying a walk during the storm. That was last night.
Today, the snow sits and waits to melt. Freezing cold temperatures remain and the heater runs non-stop. People wearing heavy coats and snowsuits are outside walking their sweater covered dogs. Kids are trying to find a hill somewhere to use their sleds. (They must be from out of town if they have sleds here.)
And then…a funny sight!! A family rides by the front of our home, in their golf cart. Four people bundled up and laughing. Behind them is a rope and another jolly person on a sled. We live on a short street, one way in and one way out. This family has found a new use for their golf cart. Sledding!!!! More golf carts and families ride by later in the afternoon. Looks like everyone is enjoying the snow.
This is a rare sight!! Golf carts and sleds!! We love to hear the laughter of the families and we know they are making special memories together. Everyone appears to be having an exciting time!(while staying safe, of course)
Was your area visited by this crazy storm? Stay warm and enjoy some hot chocolate.
Remember, God loves you.
Blessings and giggles,
