We have seen this before people


Lincoln's Birthday 2010 will be a day to remember in South Carolina. It was indeed a rare day in which snow fell from Hilton Head to Ceaser's Head. But, snow is not the rarity in South Carolina that the media makes it out to be.

Such is especially true in the upstate of South Carolina. Just two weeks ago, a light coating of ice from freezing rain was greeted by a dusting of snow in the upstate. Last March, the upstate got over five inches of the white stuff. On the day of the Republican Presidential Primary in 2008, the upstate was blanketed with snow.

In other words, we have seen snow before. Why people act as if we have not seen snow before is beyond VUI.

That said, it is a rare day that all of South Carolina sees snow. From Oconee County to Jasper County, the SC DOT is reporting wintry road conditions. That is something to note. It has indeed been a long time since the entire state of South Carolina dealt with snow at the same time.

But, this snow event is a lucky one. It happened on a Friday night at the start of a holiday weekend with President's Day on Monday. Thus, major closings are not necessary.

So, enjoy the snow, folks, but act like you have seen it before. Such widespread snow might be rare, but it is not the end of civilization as we know it. A good bit of the snow will be melted by Saturday afternoon. What snow is left will be waiting on the next batch, predicted to fall Sunday night. Welcome to so called global warming.

  1. You are an ignorant hillbilly. Global warming is why you get snow down in hillbilly land so much. Learn something, hick.

  4. I do not know who Billy is or whether or not that is his house. I do know that Brian McCarty is secretly planning to run for Anderson County Council against Cindy Wilson. We know what you are up to Mr. McCarty! We watch your every move. We are always there.

  5. I bet as a child, Cindy Fan and Cindy herself ate the yellow snow.

  7. I was hoping you would get drunk and drive off the snowy roads and DIE DIE DIE! Everyone else dies, why can't you. We are waiting to celebrate.

  8. Nutcase, it is good to know you have not overdosed yet. Get counseling. Get help. Jesus loves you. The rest of us think that you are an asshole.

  9. Somehow, some way, this snow is Earl Capps's fault. Bank on it.

  10. President Obama says this is global warming.

  11. Well, anon, that puts my mind at ease. If President Obama says this is global warming, that settles the matter. After all, our Lord Obama is the final say on all things human. If Barack I says it, it must be true. It can not be any other way. I hope Barack I lets me have my ration of bread and milk now.

  12. Willie, you bet it was. Me and the education establishment and the RINOs were planning this all along.

    You figured us out. I don't know how you knew, but dammit, you did!
