By FITSNews || For those of you unfamiliar with South Carolina, it never snows here.

Well, not in Columbia, S.C. anyway.

Greenville and Spartanburg (hell even Myrtle Beach) occasionally get some snowflakes, but Columbia?  Never. It’s like the concrete armpit of the Southeast has too much residual hot air from our do-nothing state legislature for any winter precipitation to fall … let alone stick.

Well, that theory will be put to the test Friday and Saturday as a rare winter slush/snowstorm begins making its way across the Palmetto State.

Current forecasts call for as much as four inches of snow to fall in the Columbia area, although we’ll believe that when we see it.

Anyway, the National Weather Service has most of the state under a winter storm warning that will run through Saturday morning.  Traveling is strongly discouraged.
