Spring in Charleston

It's hard to believe that just three weeks ago we had a snow storm in Charleston. Of course, this being a twenty-year event, meaning, it rarely snows here, The Cosmopolitan Charlestonian had to run right out and participate in all things snow-related, like, catching a snowflake on one's tongue, bombarding people with snowballs, making a snow angel, and walking about gawking at the ironic site of snow accumulated atop palm trees (this isn't supposed to happen here!). Now, just three weeks later, Spring is Springing in Charleston. Thank goodness the cold has broken and the Spring Equinox is just around the corner. It's a time of rebirth, renewal and growth. After a long, cold, hard winter in the South, the first signs of Spring are welcome, beautiful and appreciated.
