Perhaps it is this reason that ...

Thank the road crews

I would like to commend the S.C. Department of Transportation, city of Camden and Kershaw County road crews for their work during last week's snow/ice storm. I and many of our deputies were on the roads and found them to be in better shape than we expected. I also appreciate the hard work of the various power companies for preparing for a snow/ice event by keeping trees trimmed away from power lines.

The storm

Last week's forecasts of an "epic winter storm" in the South had everyone in Kershaw County scurrying around trying to get prepared. Of course, it's an old joke that if a few flakes of snow are forecast, Southerners flood grocery stores to stock up with milk and bread -- we've never quite understood why milk and bread -- and supermarkets in this area were indeed beehives of activity early last week as people prepared for possible power outages and periods of being homebound.
