State of the Union: January 22, 2008

Snow, snow, glorious snow! Feathery, quarter-sized flakes, perfect for packing into snowballs. Now it’s just cold and my thin blood’s resisting getting out in the weather, business-as-usual. My hat’s off to Minnesota moms who deal with the hats-and-mitten dance daily for months.

Yes, the snow was three days ago and is entirely gone now, but this is the south, after all: it’ll take a week for us to get back to normal.
