7 Things That Happen When it Snows in the South
Snow days in the South are almost as rare as Big Foot sightings. When it does snow, we Southerners tend to freak out in every way possible. It's half celebration and half, "It's the end of the world as we know it." Granted, we don't have snowplows down here and many of our cars aren't prepared for slick or icy roads. It's also hard to know what to expect because our forecasts change so quickly. Despite the uncertainty, here are seven things you can bet will happen when it snows in the South.
1. The mere possibility of a snowflake falling induces mass hysteria as Southerners flock to the grocery store and load up on milk and bread.
2. All it takes is a light dusting and ALL SCHOOLS are closed.
3. Muddy snowmen - part dirt, part grass, and part snow. Can't say we didn't try.
4. The snow angels are pretty pathetic too.
5. Country boys and girls act like country boys and girls (just add snow).
6. Everybody wrecks because nobody knows how to drive in the snow.
7. Whether it's one inch or ten, it will be called #snowpocalypse or #snowmeggedon.

A couple of weeks ago, Carrie Underwood called up the Nashville Predators before a home playoff game and asked to sing the National Anthem. Since then, Luke Bryan, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Vince Gill, Keith Urban, Kelly Clarkson and Trisha Yearwood have been asked to sing. This series of events caused the Preds' "regular" National Anthem singer, Dennis K. Morgan, to reach out to the media and air his disdain for these decisions.
If you missed ABC's remake of the classic "Dirty Dancing," you only missed the opportunity to see what happens when you try to reinvent an eternal classic by adding a Pussycat Doll into the mix. Of course, the Internet had a lot to say about one of the saddest primetime made-for-TV movies ever.
I've always said I'm glad social media didn't exist when I was in middle school. I would've had more terrible YouTube videos out there than one could ever imagine.
6 Pretty Hilarious Things Jessica Simpson Said on "CBS Sunday Morning" (Before That Interview with Ellen)
If you don't watch "CBS Sunday Morning," you're missing out on one of the most enlightening and endearing shows on TV. Like a lot of things I do on Sunday, I religiously watch this show. Last week, Jessica Simpson was interviewed and I didn't think much of it, until I saw that super weird interview on "The Ellen Show."
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has played some incredible roles over the years. From his years as a cocky tough guy in the squared circle, to a guy that is racing to Witch Mountain (Which mountain? THAT mountain!).
