Snowpocalypse 2010 Hits South Carolina!

February 13, 2010

Snow covers one of the paths on USC's Horseshoe

Last night around 4 pm, it began snowing here in Columbia, South Carolina.  The snow continued throughout the night and we received a total of 6-8 inches of snow, the 6th heaviest snowfall in record in Columbia!  This is my third year in Columbia and I have never seen it snow more than a few flakes.  It was quite a night, although I did worry about those on the roadways, considering Columbia drivers’ lack of snow driving experience.

My roommate and I ventured out into the “blizzard” to go see USC’s Historic Horseshoe, the most recognizable part of our campus, covered in snow.  Posted here are some photos from last night and this morning.  In the photos from last night, you can see some of the students who were out having snowball fights and building snowmen.  This morning, temperatures were already up to the mid-40s and the snow had melted significantly, as you can see from photos.  As short-lived as it was, it was a wonderfully surreal experience seeing South Carolina covered in snow.

The morning after Columbia's snowfall, it's already starting to melt!

    Those first two pictures are phenomenal, Sare!

    I agree with Greg. The top picture has a nostalgic feel. I can imagine a horse drawn buggy comming around the bend in this brick road.

    Nice pictures Sarah. Stay warm. I hear there may be more snow this week. Dry here. Perhaps snow tomorrow. Eric went to CA.

    Sarah I wondered what was happening down there. We had 12 inches on the week end and last Monday through Wednesday we had an additional 6. Ours hasn’t melted but with snow plows etc. we are able to get out. I loved your photo’s and how you catch the glow of the available lighting. Keep up the good work.
    Love, Grandma
