    My buddy Tom has a song that’s called The Great Southern Whiteout:

    Over the last loaf of bread
    And by the time we got four inches
    They had closed I-65
    And the state homeland security
    Had taken us to red.

Our Florida, Arkansas, and North Carolina trained sensibilities required we do so and we were all rather surprised to find no one else engaged in that great southern ritual of buying toilet paper and the ingredients for French Toast before a a snow storm.
