Snow. Cool.

Of course, to nearly everyone else in Washington, it's the end of the world!!

Hoard the milk! And the bread! (Why is it always milk and bread that sell out when a snowstorm is pending?)

Hide the children! Cancel school for the next week! (The very word "snow," when heard on the radio, causes several area counties to cancel school. Another reason it's a good thing that "Informer" was the only major hit by Canadian white-boy rapper Snow.)

Abandon the roads! (Just as well. People in D.C. can't drive in snow, even though most of them own 4x4 SUVs. Or maybe it's because they own them and think they make the driver invincible or something.)

Panic! Panic! Panic! (It's probably the last remaining vestige of Washington's historical Southern-ness that it acts this way whenever snow comes.)
