Snow in South Carolina
I don't think I've seen this much snow at one time in all the 12 years I've lived in South Carolina. It started as ice pellets Sunday evening, then changed to thick, fluffy, cottony flakes. It soon grew dark, but we could still watch the snow fall thick and fast in the glow of the porch light. Two hours after it started, the power went out, so we all camped out in the living room near the kerosene heater, which also doubled as a cook stove. The electricity was restored late Tuesday morning, but our well pump was frozen, so we were still without water until early afternoon. Whew! I was getting tired of trying to wash dishes with melted snow! For the most part, though, we had a blast!

We built this snowman in at our neighbor's house where the snow packed better.
