While winter storm Helena is ravishing much of the Carolinas, Virginia, and New England, Charleston has dodged the bullet.  Aside from a couple of brief flurries and some admittedly chilly weather (relatively speaking), we chived right on.  Friends had scheduled their annual New Year’s Oyster Roast at their beautiful Johns Island home, and as the day wore on and the clouds cleared out, the way was paved for a perfect afternoon. Happy New Year!
