It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! by American Elephant

About eight inches of fluffy, white global-warming here on the ground in Seattle. More snow than we’ve had since I was a child, earlier in the year than normal, and already a longer sub-freezing spell than we almost ever get. Naturally, liberals are claiming its more evidence of “climate change”. Do they honestly expect the weather to remain constant?

But it sure is beautiful. White Christmases are very rare around here, our norm is cold, gray, drizzly Christmasses. Hopefully it will stick around long enough. *fingers crossed*.

Although, it does make getting around difficult. Seattlites are horrible drivers to begin with, mind you. They not only cannot drive in the snow, but they cant drive in any other weather either — rain, wind — even sunshine seems to addle their brains. Serve up anything other than dreary overcast skies, and Seattle drivers lose complete control of their faculties, not to mention what little driving ability they possessed. But when it snows! Oy! People will abandon their cars, in the middle of the road no less, in two inches of snow. We now have eight. There are accidents everywhere, cars abandoned willy-nilly. It truly is pathetic.

And so, even those of us who can drive in snow try to avoid the roads for fear of what someone else may do. Fortunately, much remains to be done to get ready for Christmas.

ooooooooooooooooooo! Snow is so non-partisan. I love it. But not ice.

I would enjoy seeing snow. I’m with Helen on the ice!

As for snow being non-partisan, I’m not sure. I’ll bet it’s Bush’s fault that there are so many winter storms in America right now. 🙂

It is Bush’s fault! He stopped global warming!
