Snowbound. Cabin fever. It has finally reached the Virginia Blogosphere.
Here in the Richmond area, we have had more snow than I can recall in a long time, but areas to the north and west of us are beginning to make the photos from Virginia born Richard E. Byrd’s famous South Pole expedition look like a day at the beach.
SWACgirl has posted some pictures from SWAC country that are beautiful, inspiring and uplifting to everyone that does not have to deal with the massive frozen cover. Those that live there … not so much. But the pictures here are really cool. SWACgirl tells me that she has been forced to dig a pretty serious network of tunnels that rival those under the US – Mexico boarder.
And Crystal Clear Conservative has resorted to a special iPod mix to help relieve the cabin fever symptoms. To be honest, I would imagine that she has scratch marks on the walls and windows, as this is one energetic and outgoing lady.
To these ladies and the rest of the snowbound Virginians going nuts, I would like to pass on the wisdom of the 1970′s philosopher and poet that so enriched my youth that I will forever be indebted to his sage advice. I am, of course, referring to the late Frank Zappa. His wisdom transcends time and life itself with this important advice: Don’t eat the yellow snow!
