Blizzard of 2010

What a wonderful Winter of 2010. The Blizzard of February 2010 will be remembered for a long time. And of course, global warming deniers will have a field day mocking the Hockey Stick. Some Washington, D.C. politicians are even building igloos in honor of former Vice President and global warming guru Al Gore. This snow will surely purify the earth and the air. Oh the smell of pure air in the middle of the night during a snow storm such as this.

Yet climate change easily embraces this blizzard. The very phrase 'climate change' indicates that there will be huge swings in the weather. From droughts that contribute to wildfires to increased ocean temperatures that contribute to larger hurricanes, climate change will manifest itself. Should we brace for a super hot summer sooner or later? You can take it to the bank. Hopefully with a wheel barrow full of carbon offset credits. Snowpocalypse. Snowmegeddon. The federal government shut down in Washington, D.C. Some are celebrating that fact alone. School cancellations. The U.S. Postal Service shut down for the day. And they have told the snow plows to cease and desist due to white out conditions. Game over. The Blizzard of 2010.
