tent city in the snow greenville sc, the homeless

Yesterday it started to snow, the schools closed early, and most were home before usual. Snow is exciting in the southeast. But, in the back of my mind, I wondered if those in the tent city would seek an alternative shelter. So I decided to make my way over there first thing.

This morning was really cold and we had snow. I wondered if everyone survived the night.  The back roads were frozen solid on the way there.

When I arrived, and started to walk, I noticed there were no human footprints  in the new fallen snow. I thought to myself (so, no one had walked in or out yet), well maybe the bus I was told about came and picked everyone up. I forgot my hat and gloves in the vehicle, and the cold breeze made me pay for it.  The tent city was quiet as I made my way toward it. As I got closer I saw a few moving around, then more near the fire.  I was nervous, wondering if everyone was OK. There were a good many there. Most seemed to have nowhere else to go.

Items which help when it is below freezing:

-water

-propane refills/ wood (propane refills last 4 days in cold below freezing)

-canned food

-tarps and things to keep the wind out.

-Gloves, hats, coats, etc..

-Here are some of the photographs from this morning.
