Better get your bread and milk!

Well, not quite a blizzard. Not even a real snowstorm for that matter, but we did get a little snow here along the Grand Strand... the most they've gotten in quite a few years. It dominated the news stories all last evening. We ended up getting about 3" of accumulation here on the coast. By about 1:00 in the afternoon it was all gone. Being from the north, it was a nice treat for Anna and I to see.

Some pics and videos. Some serious, some not so much so. As always, click on the pic to enlarge...








We submitted this pic to the WMBF News website and they used it as their featured image...

Freezin' for a Reason

Last weekend Kirby braved the cold breezy air and participated in the Myrtle Beach Polar Plunge. NMBM school raised about $6,000 (for Special Olympics) to see a few teachers and some students run into the Atlantic Ocean in the middle of winter.




Everyone was stuffed into the warm basement of a hotel until the DJ let the herd of entergetic people out onto the beach. Everyone stripped off their clothes and when the bullhorn blew... there was madness!!

Here's a video from a local news cast of the event. I can't get the link to work, so you'll have to copy and paste the address into your web browser...
