Let’s Talk about the Weather

No..like literally..let’s talk about the weather.  How bizarre has it been in February?  That groundhog called for more winter and man did mother nature deliver.

Now, I haven’t truly experienced the brunt of the snowpocolypse that has occured in the past 30 days because I live in South Carolina.  We’ve had cold and rainy, but no snow.  I’m sure those of you that live in the north are thinking of how fortunate I am, but as someone who is more of a summer than a winter…I don’t see fortune.  For us, if it snows decently, we pretty much shut down.  This means I can work from home, stay in my pj’s and drink coffee and hot chocolate while snuggling up with my hubby and the stinker (aka my adorable furbaby – Yota).

No snow, means going out in miserably cold and rainy conditions and no one ever wants to do that.  So…mother nature, if we are going to keep with this cold thing..can you toss some of the white stuff our way..and make it stick.  Otherwise..let’s warm it up a bit.

Speaking of warming it up though…next week we are supposed to get up to 78 degrees! Beautiful right..but it look at all that rain.  Can Spring just arrive already?

While I know talking about the weather isn’t the most exciting topic..I’m kind of a nerd in that I OBSESS over the weather.  I check the daily/weekly/10 day and radar maps several times a day.   Maybe I’m hoping for a different outcome..although..that’s feeling a little close to the definition of insanity.  So..what about you.  Is there anyone out there that feels as passionately about the weather as I do?  Let me know in the comments below and we can obsess together.  


SNOW in South Carolina!

Columbia South Carolina saw something this weekend that it hasn’t seen in nearly 10 years…8 inches of SNOW! Isn’t that crazy. For those of us that have lived in SC our entire lives, Friday evening’s snowfall felt like a blizzard. Andy kept laughing because I couldn’t get over how much there was…however…the next morning he agreed that we did get a lot of snow. We wanted to make sure we made the most of it, so we went out Saturday morning and shot some digital pics and I took some 35mm black and whites. We let Yota play in the snow, and while he was skeptical at first, he eventually loved it and loved hunting in it. However, by now it has all melted and we are back to plain SC with bitter cold temps again. It was fun while it lasted, but I am definitely one of those people that is happy it only comes every now and then. While we didn’t really stay trapped in the house, it was somewhat of an upset to routine..and I would hate to have that all of the time. I’ve included some pics of our South Carolina blizzard for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!
