Snow in Foothills of South Carolina

If you have been reading my blog you know that we have been vacationing in South Carolina, to be exact the foothills, Anderson, Greenville, Travelers Rest. Great places and fun also.

John and I had four days of wonderful weather and spring fever crept in. It would have to be April for these temperatures to occur in Minnesota. We knew they needed rain and figured, we wouldn't complain if rain came in. And guess what? It all started on Friday with overcast skies and a few sprinkles. Timber kept her head out the window of the truck, and we wore a light jacket. Saturday it poured, Again Timber with here head out the window taking in the scents of the area she did not complain, however we started to feel like ducks. What was fun was pulling those little promo sheets from the yards with sale sign on them. Wet, yiks, they got lots of rain.

But than on Sunday we heard of snow coming, snow, oh no... so when the flakes started we settled into our hotel room to watch the races, NASCAR for those who don't know our love for the tracks. Anyway, the race started and the signal was lost. John watched the blank television for some time. He was in shock, even in Minnesota we have never lost a signal longer than five minutes. To make a story short, it never came back, tower went down due to snow and ice.

Monday we woke up to this. Only to find out that the state had shut down and thats when it happened. John looked at me and we both said we are out of here. Off we went.


  1. Yeah, this was the worst one in our 3 years here. The ice storm the year we moved down was pretty bad, too. But, on the brighter side, it is going to be 78 this weekend (today's high is 67) and we are going downtown for the Irish Festival.

    By the way---there are great houses available in my neighborhood and nearby! :)

  2. What a beautiful photo, it looks so magical, I have been to the snow but have never seen it falling like that.

  3. What a beautiful picture...I wanted you to know that I added you to my blog:
