Snowdog Millionares*

Georgia is appropriately mocked for how panicked we get at the first sign of inclement winter weather.  Here in Atlanta, we're particularly big pansies about the cold.  Public schools don't hesitate to make high schoolers practice football in full pads in 98 degree August humidity, but a sprinkling of snow shuts the whole city down.  We just don't like the stuff.

So, in honor of a snow day that shut down my office, I'm posting a video I made two years ago when a similar snow day shut down the University of Georgia.  Most conscientious law students used the extra day to study and begin their outlines; a few friends of mine decided to go trashcan-lid sledding instead.  You decided who made the right move.  And please, turn on the sound.

*The title "Snowdog Millionares" was super relevant and topical in March 2009 when I made this.  If I'd made it today, I would more likely have named it "The Snow-cial Network."

I like this video for the oh so rare sighting of one of the elusive "churchills" (i think that's what they are called).

Only a southerner would be playing in the snow in a dress (although it is a very cute dress)!

Jules, that's my coat! I'm wearing jeans and boots (didn't have any ski pants in Athens) and a red coat!
