Freezing in the Deep South

You read that correctly. In January of 2018 we dipped down into the 20’s and had snow and ice in Charleston South Carolina. While it was snowing we all thought it was pretty cool and we loved how it looked. On day 2 we were ready for it to go away. When we get ice and snow in the low country of South Carolina our cities are forced to shut things down. People go home, schools and businesses are closed and grocery stores run out of milk and bread.

It did not take long for cabin fever to set in as we waiting on the snow and ice to start to melt. The only problem is that the temperatures stayed well below freezing which means the snow and slush stayed around for longer than we would have liked. Unlike our northern neigbhors we do not have snow shovels, plows or ice scrapers. When I decided to go outside and clear off the windows on my Kia I had to use a kitty littler scooper to get the snow off the windshield. I bet it took me the better part of an hour to get enough slush off the car in order to see the glass. I had the defroster running full blast while I was doing that.

I was very happy that I was able to go inside and defrost next to the fireplace once I got the car windows cleared off. We were very fortunate that our electricity did not go out nor did the Internet connection. We live in the south so we do not have to endure the freezing temperatures and frozen precipitation like our neighbors up north do.

Do you have winter wonderland stories from the south dear reader?

  1. You forgot to mention that I was too chicken to get out in the snow and ice!
