Winter Storm Warnings

Unitarian Churchyard, Charleston, S.C.
Today's photo is from a recent walk through the Unitarian and St. John's Lutheran churchyards. She is a sweet angel isn't she?

The only thing we can talk about in Charleston today is the threatening ice storm due to hot tomorrow even though today was lovely and warm. We don't see much snow or ice in the lowcountry so it's big excitement each time. Everyone is buying up batteries and wine. We get a little confused with hurricane preparations but it seems clear that wine is required. Stay warm kids!

    1. I still get spam comments once and awhile. Very tiresome.

      We aren't equipped to handle storms. You wouldn't even blink at what we have going on here but it is big excitement for us.

  2. I was thinking about you as Al Roker was talking about the ice storm forecast for Charleston and other places last night on the news. Stay warm. And keep your supply of wine close at hand!

  3. I love old graveyards; the modern ones with their uniform flat markers do little for me. I wonder if you could even find someone who could create an angel like the one you have pictured. What talent. I guess their likes have gone the way of the master masons, cabinet makers and all the other incredibly gifted craftsmen who once turned out handmade works of art for everyday use.

    1. I love them as well and agree. The very worst are the modern ones with the container for plastic flowers. My kids threaten to put me in one of them if I am an unagreeable old lady ;).
