Speaking of Snow.....

Will winter never end?  Even the lovely resort of town of DeBordieu, South Carolina could not escape winter weather this past weekend.

My son and his wife spent the President's Day weekend there, hoping for some fun in the late winter sun. Instead, this is what they found.

Five inches of snow fell this past weekend. Although beautiful, it was not expected or wanted, since they had left the blizzards that had been dumping feet of snow in the Washington, D.C. area off and on for the last several weeks.

Palm trees covered in snow! Where does the sand end and the snow begin?

Birds along the snowy beach, probably wondering what in the world was going on!

It never warmed up enough to melt the snow, although the sun finally came out.

The beach club and pool area.

A snowy boardwalk to the beach.

Confused waterfowl!

A beautiful sunrise on a cold winter morning!


  1. Palms covered in snow?...... How I wish, the papaya and banana plants covered in snow one fine morning here in my little vegetable garden. ~bangchik

  2. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it. It's very pretty, though. Nature is always full of surprises!
