Last October, my husband Rob and I spent our first anniversary in Pennsylvania. Even though it was early October, there were a few days of flurries that were determined to stick, but never quite held on. The best snow pictures I shot by far were last January, in my home town of Jackson, SC. We were down visiting my grandmother, and while chatting over hot chocolate, Rob tapped me gently and just said, “Sweetie, look out the window.” It was beautiful! Of course nothing was sticking, but the flakes were plentiful. They were like little dancers, gracefully spiraling through the air. It was the only time I can remember seeing South Carolina snow that I would call peaceful. Most of our snow comes with ice storms. I grabbed my camera and ran outside and spent at least two hours practicing macro shots. I love the memories of that day…the snow was steady all day, and even though it didn’t stick, we enjoyed it just the same.
So, a few days ago when we didn’t get the snow the news was calling for, I went back to my pictures to relive my 2009 snow day. I thought I’d share some of those shots here…in case some of you missed out too.
