Winter Storm Pax had a huge impact on the Southeast five years ago and few counties suffered as much damage as Aiken County, SC did.
We lost several beautiful trees on our property including a beechnut tree with a 60′ canopy.
It was like a bomb hit the county and it took months and months to clean it up, but the landscape was changed forever. We were fortunate that our power was out for only about 36 hours. Luckily, we had three fireplaces in our house to stay warm.
Below is a video that was taken as someone drove around our neighborhood.
The storm came to an end on Valentines Day, but mother nature wasn’t done with us and an earthquake hit the area around 10:30 that evening, giving more reasons to ask the question, “Did you feel the earth move?” on that romantic evening.
