The Honest (Snowy) Answer: Global Warming Edition

Ah, Global Warming, you treacherous wench!

Global Warming South of the Mason-Dixon Line.

Global Warming South of the Mason-Dixon Line.

Marty and I are busy scanning the internet and mainstream media with which to entertain y’all tonight on the live show, but Mother Nature is busy, as well.  I doubt very seriously that either of us will actually watch King Barry give his State of the Union message tonight, because we actually live in the real world; and listening to Barry’s justifications for ignoring the Constitutional separation of powers only does horrible things to our blood pressure.  I would ask, though, that someone in Congress please shove a snowball in Barry’s mouth if he mentions global warming, climate change, or any other euphemism for the weather.  Please.

The pictures included in this post were taken about 40 minutes ago.  It’s still snowing.  THIS IS ALABAMA, Y’ALL.  Don’t get me wrong…..I’m not complaining about the snow, because I have no intentions of traveling anywhere today.  Snow in Alabama is not statistically rare in the winter-time.  Snow that sticks to the ground instead of melting immediately is somewhat more uncommon,  but not a bizarre occurrence.  It’s just that…..well, in a year by which Al Gore had predicted the polar ice caps would be melting and Miami and Mobile would be underwater attractions, it’s a little colder than we were told that it would be, is all I’m sayin’.   The snow is pretty, and I’ll enjoy a little walk in it this afternoon.   My cat, however, is mighty peeved that global-warming and polar vortexes have dumped all this arctic white stuff on the ground where she prefers to pee.
