Today’s GPOD comes from Patty Eckles:
We had just moved to Charleston, SC in 2007 from Maryland to get away from the snow. I couldn’t believe my eyes in 2010 when I looked out and saw snowflakes! And then it accumulated! I said, “Oh no! we didn’t move down here for this”! but that evening, we went out on our porch and heard children in our neighborhood laughing and having a great time in the snow. I am supposing some of them never saw snow before (don’t know if Charleston ever had a snow before 2010). The next morning in yards there were the tiniest snowmen that I have ever seen. By noon, when the sun came out, the snow was all gone, to the disappointment of people that work because everything shuts down here as no one has snow tires and no one knows how to drive in it.

Sending photos in separate emails to the GPOD email box is just fine.
