No snow here ... only way we ever get snow in the Piedmont area ... it hops on Interstate 85 out of Atlanta and heads right up here to us ... it never does make it from the North over the mountains!

You'll have to head up to central/Northern VA at least. If you REALLY want to see snow, take an airline trip to ANYWHERE in the US. Seems like every time I board a plane, snow, somewhere, re-routes, delays, or cancels a flight...

I use this site when I want to travel to see snow. Remember that snow lines move from day-to-day so check the previous day's temperatures and the forecast before making a trip. Right now the closest snow to Columbia is about 110-120 miles to the northwest.

According to the weather on local TV station tonight ... the NC Mountains got some snow last night ... that is the little strip of white on the NC/TN border on the map waccamatt posted. Our son lives in Port Charlotte and it's about 11 hours driving straight through to where we live. We are a couple of hours from that mountain area but you might could use I-75 up through Georgia, I don't know if that would be closer or not. I hope you find some snow for your kids.

Much of the snow in the NC mountains melted today. By tomorrow I think most of it will be gone. If you don't want to drive further than the NC Mountains you may want to wait until they get a 6-12 inch snowfall before making the trip. Late January and early February is the best time to find snow up there.

Michigan, NY, Wisconsin, Minisota, and several other states no one wants to be in. Michigan has the only Neg. population growth in the nation. They call it gods country because he is the only one who wants it. Take it from someone who lived in it for 35 years, it sucks and no one in their right mind wants it.

Watch the map above, the snow cover will change each day so you can see when the snow line moves south again. Currently, the warm snap has moved the snow line far to the north.
