The Score


-4 Richmond hits its first true deep freeze of the winter, with schools closed, work delayed and cars skidding all over the place. How cold was it? It was so cold, Dirtwoman decided to put on some pants.

+3 The General Assembly convenes, vowing to put forth meaningful legislation to crack down on ethics problems once and for all. If the price is right.

+1 Gov. Terry McAuliffe delivers his first State of the Commonwealth. Which raises the perennial mystery: Why isn’t it the Commonwealth of the Commonwealth?

+2 The iconic Fan bar Buddy’s Place opens at its new home in the Devil’s Triangle. Moving took longer than expected because some of the regulars had to be carried over on their barstools.

+1 Tucker the pig, who lives as a pet with a family in Brandermill as an emotional-support animal, is given permission to stay for at least a year. The lesson for all the pigs out there is this: Never, ever, ever, ever give up on your dreams.
