Big brother to the rescue!

A Southern Snow Day

We had a Virginia snow day yesterday,which means an inch of snow, clear roads by 11 A.M., and everything closed. While my northeast friends laughed at us, my Southern children didn’t know the difference, and we all had a blast.

SNOW DAY!
SNOW DAY!

The baby met the snow as well, but like a good Southern child decided to hate it within 20 seconds.  Oh well.

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on LateEnough.com, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.
