Today’s weather in Charleston was nothing short of historic.  On James Island we accumulated about 4″ of snow.  The last time Charleston had experienced anything like that was in 1989 shortly after Hurricane Hugo had devastated the area.  As the meteorologists excitedly elevated their predictions for snow in the Coastal Carolinas, I listened with some scepticism, having heard similar  forecasts in past years, forecasts that never materialized.  Well, they got it right this time.  Of course we are entirely ill equipped to handle such events, and all businesses and school activity came to a grinding halt for two days, but it sure was a pretty sight.  Maybe we’ll see it again in another 30 years, or maybe not.  I had forgotten about global warming 🙂
