So we Southerners have a bad reputation for driving in snow. Mostly it’s deserved. Take the residents of the Chesapeake region of Virginia as the latest example in a shameful, Piggly Wiggly–raiding history of freak overreactions to weather. The Associated Press reports that Monday’s snowfall of less than one inch in the stretch of I-64 between Virginia Beach and Williamsburg caused about 115 minor accidents, for which the state police had to call in extra troopers. Would it have been worse if it weren’t Presidents’ Day? Probably. Can you think of a more timely metaphor for modern politics? We totally doubt it.
