V is for Virginia Opossum

Between that crazy earthquake & Hurricane Irene, Virginians have endured more than their share of our planet's little tantrums lately. I hope there are no more unpleasant surprises in store any time soon for our neighbor state (or its eponymous 'possums).

Nice! He's so cute, he could star in a children's book.

Opoor opathetic opossum!

What's next for him, wildfires? All the other elements have spoken!

Thanks, Lupi! He requests a book with a happy ending.

I'm sure he'll oppreciate your sympathy, Isaac! And if the weather in Virginia is anything like it is here right now, the only fire he has to fear is lightning.
