My parents recently started to gradually move down to South Carolina over the past couple months and during my trip to Atlanta for the Hot Chocolate Run 15k, I was finally able to see the house they are renting out in Boiling Springs. Originally, I was supposed to start of my long weekend trip down south in South Carolina, but in my Time for a Racecation in Atlanta post I mentioned how my flight into Charlotte, North Carolina (which is an hour away from my parents house) got cancelled due to the oncoming winter storm Jonas. Luckily, we were able catch a flight into Atlanta, which is where we ultimately needed to be anyways for the race – but this involved skipping out on time in South Carolina that we had originally banked on having.
Winter storm Jonas came and went, and brought some snow and cold to all the Southerners who aren’t used to that type of weather, and it was really interesting to see. After the race on Sunday, we finally made our way to South Carolina so Julie and I could see the house and the area my parents would be staying in. As we were driving there, the closer we got to the house, the more snow there was on the ground. It was kind of amazing to see to be honest. It isn’t very often that South Carolina gets hit with as much snow as it did, so I took the opportunity to take some pictures of it with my new DSLR camera. There was only a couple of inches on the ground, but the snow still looked rather pretty!
