Your photos never disappoint. They totally missed the forecast in Columbia; I didn't see a single flake.

Thanks waccamatt. I didn't expect much in the Greenville area until I checked the latest forecast early Sunday morning. It seemed that the Midlands were expected to see the worst of it on Saturday, but obviously something changed before the snow arrived. We probably had over a foot total accumulation, considering the fact that the snow was melting most of yesterday, until the temperature reached freezing late last night. The NWS said that the precip was falling at a rate of 3 inches per hour. It was definitely the worst snowfall I've seen here in quite a while. At least it helped to ease the drought a bit.

Here is another photo from this morning, March 2, 2009:

It definitely is helping the drought situation! I wish I had gotten a picture of Lake Hartwell before the 3 days of rain and snow we've just endured.

We got about 7in. here in Fountain Inn, most snow I have ever seen! I bet you could add all the snow I have seen in my lifetime up, and it would not top as much as we got yesterday!

FYI, there were a lot of abandoned vehicles late last night, and several more are still out in the more rural parts of Greenville County.. We lost power here around 8:45pm and did not get it back until this morning.

With the temps dropping into the teens tonight, be ready for ice in the morning!

BEAUTIFUL, Skyliner! Snow photos always look better to me after the sun comes out.

Great pics, G-Man430! Wow, there sure is no lack of water in the Reedy River and the falls now, is there?

Here's one out one of my windows this morning. My poor pines got bent over.
