Snow In Myrtle Beach ??

I have not been around lately because of a falty computer. But the other day I broke down and bought a new one. It is a touch computer, and wireless, it is awesome with the help of my son.

In other news, in Myrtle Beach it actually snowed here. Myrtle Beach, Bi-Lo marathon is held each year on Valentine's weekend. This year it was cancelled.

I felt bad for the runners in the marathon. Some of them came from long distances. Like always the town freaks out, when the hear snow. Many of the runners still ran even though it was cancelled.

The runners train for about a year, then the expense of coming here for long distances. Oh, well the runners did not seem to angry just disappointed that this happened. We will just have to watch next year.

It was great to see snow. I have not seen snow seen I moved here from Ramsey, NJ. We would get plenty of the white stuff with ice. But here, it looked like a white wonderland. It was just beautiful to look at.
This is a snowman, David my son made. Did not last to long.

I don't want to deal with the shoveling and digging out like we used to deal with. But looking at it was nice. People were making snowmen and throwing snow balls. I don't think big enough for toboggening. We started getting heavy flurries around 9 PM on Friday. It was so pretty coming down. Then at 8 before I went to work I took some pictures. It was all white and pretty. The pavement was all wet. But it was still white. But by 1 PM, it melted away.

We got some snow here Friday night too, but it was pretty much gone by noon on Saturday.

I'll bet the kids there had a blast. I wish the snow here would melt away that quickly!
