Beach Snow

   How cool is this? Snow on the beach? How often to we think of those two together? If you live on a northern coast, sure. But for those of us who live for our precious vacation days on the beach, snow does not enter into that vacation equation.
   How odd that I've spent my last two years planning to move somewhere that doesn't have snow. No more snow, I've cried. No more winter! So off I've gone on my search for Home, the place of no winter. Right off the bat I learned that it was sun not temperature that mattered. Sunshine makes up for below zero, ice on the roads and ten days in a row of snow storms.
   And now, tonight, I accepted snow as an acceptable piece of my life. I am sitting in a condo on Myrtle Beach, SC on the night the 2010 Olympics officially begin which also happens to be the day that 49 of the 50 United States of America had measurable snowfall. Only the moutains of Hawaii held back. Alabama, Texas, Mississippi, Georgia. Think about it. How cool is this night? Pay attention. Mother Nature has the Floor...
