First Winter Snow

The first snow of the season came Friday night into Saturday morning, with more snow in the northern part of Greenville county and just an inch or 2 in the southern part of the county. This view up Church Street from the East Camperdown Way bridge shows the work by road crews in keeping the main part of the roads clear. Greenville city crews also quickly cleaned sidewalks in the main parts of the city.

The first flowers of the season always have the risk of damage from the cold. These Daffodils in Falls Park are seeing the results of this ‘Blizzard’ last week. But as snowfall goes, it was amazingly mild, even for this area. Just a dusting of snow on the ground over a period of an hour or so, then the sun came out and it was all gone an hour later! It’s even a fine storm to hike in Falls Park.

The City of Greenville Snow Fighters are serious about their job. This was before last week’s snowstorm “Pax” began accumulating snow on Broad Street. They were pre-treating the bridges and overpasses with salt, sand, and brine. Because the storm lasted over several days, they put in many hours in keeping the key roads passable for emergency equipment.
