JL's Columbia SC Real Estate Blog: A Rare Event in Columbia, SC

A Rare Event in Columbia, SC

Snow in Columbia, SC After repeatedly hearing from friends up North about their downfalls of the white stuff, the other night, we actually had some right here in Columbia. I heard the reports that we would see 4 to 5 inches, but in all honesty I figured it wouldn't really happen. The fact of the matter is, to say snow is rare here in Columbia is a bit of an understatement.

 But none the less, while out previewing communities, sure enough I started seeing flurries. I still didn't think we would see any accumulation, but later that evening, the snow started to pile up. Of course, for you guys further North, 4 or 5 inces may not seem like a lot but for us that's A LOT.

 I quickly became aware that there would be no bread or milk within a 50 mile radius of my home. At that point in knew there was only one thing that was sensible to do at the time. I called a neighbor from New Jersey to have a snowball fight and teach me how to make a snowman.

Snow in Columbia, SC

 So, with the snow steady falling and bundled up in an outfit that made me resemble the Michelin Man, I set out to make my first snowman. Yes, at 29 I made my first snowman, but seriously, I'm from Columbia. How often do you think I have had enough snow around to make a snowman?

 I'll be the first to admit that he's not the most impressive guy in the world, but I was happy with him just the same. And with my friend there to coach me on the proper method of rolling a snowball repeatedly across the yard until it got larger, I at least had a fighting chance of making things come out right.

 All and all we had a lot of fun and my dog even got in on the act. Of course it will likely be a while before I get a chance to increase my experience in making snowmen, but when the time comes I will be prepared. As for now, we seem to have thawed out and most of our snow here in Columbia has gone away.

JL...I am glad you got the chance to make a snow man.   Did you make a snow angle also?

Looks like great fun Bill...we got 3-4 inches here in Boulder last night but most of it melted away during the day.

It was a lot of fun wasn't it? And it was not ALL that cold either.
