2017 has started and January has just begun. The South Carolinians are in the middle of winter; however, winter may not be here with us.

Down here in South Carolina, it practically never snows. The most snow this state will see will be in the upstate, and even then, the snow is not heavy at all.

This is called Box sliding!

This is a perfect example of how the clothing barely evolves during the winter months. Many women are leaving the house with a light sweater and a pair of boots, and not the kind made for harsh winters. Sometimes, only a light jacket will get one through some of the “coldest days” in South Carolina.

Yes, oh yes. We wear sandals year around in South Carolina. We find the perfect toe socks for those extra crisp days, but most of the time we are rocking our sandals with our toes out! I bet Chicago can’t say they can wear sandals year around….
