The Daily Ping

P is for Ping. That's good enough for me.

Continued Snow Hysteria

I’ve complained about people’s general stupidity in the south (even Virginia) when it comes to snow. Schools here have closed because it was too cold when it was 30 degrees out. In Virginia Beach, they had what could only be described as “half a dusting” and schools were closed. And even when it does snow a bit, people act like it’s the scariest thing ever. Last night, my wife headed home early from work because people were telling her, “It’s slick outside! I was sliding all over!” The truth, as she found out: it was slushy. Like when it rains. Not a bit of ice to be seen. Crazy. As I like to say, “This wouldn’t happen up north!”

This is all ground that’s been covered before. I just felt the need to emphasize it. Thank you.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
