YES we think it's FRIGID on Hilton Head Island when it gets to 32!
We admit it, we're not hardy. What's more, we like not being hardy. That's why we all moved here. We love our oyster roasts and love standing around the roaring fire, but that's only to forget that it really is cold.
Yesterday afternoon when Atlanta got snow and ice, and became a giant parking lot, we were worried about storm "Leon" coming our way. When Jacksonville got snow this afternoon, we were horrified. Savannah too, just a little to our south, was like a skating rink on the pretty squares and the fountains were actually dripping ice! When our "northern city" Charleston got a dusting of snow, we became even more worried.
Yes, businesses are closed but of course in real estate everything continues since we're 'in the cloud'. Schools were closed, too and we can tell that everyone is online because our Hargray connections are even slower than usual. This afternoon we are glad that we weren't hit that badly BUT the poor palm fronds got the rain last night and our mailboxes have icicles.
Yes, I admit to usually calling my clients who actually live full-time in the northeast and reporting on our usual January weather in the 40's - and yes, today, they are calling me to ask whether or not 'it' happened and laughing that we are panicked with the potential 1" of snow.
But, to reiterate, YES we think it's FRIGID on Hilton Head Island when it gets to 32! No matter, as Scarlet said "fiddle dee dee, tomorrow is another day" - or something like that and by Friday it will be in the 60's- WHEW just in time.
P.S. If you STILL want to move here, please be sure to contact me - I'll be the one bundled up with a parka, gloves, and hat even when it's 45 degrees outside.
