This is unusual…
I’ve watched enough news lately to know that this winter could be described as “somewhat harsh”. Snowstorms terrorizing the northeast and mid-west! People getting trapped in their homes! Car accidents! Cities being shutdown because they don’t have enough snowplows, blah, blah, blah! I feel for my fellow citizens going through all that. But they live in places where the winters can be rough. Being a tropical guy myself, I know I wouldn’t do well in that environment. And that is one reason I call San Antonio home. The climate is to my liking. Not too hot, and not too… wait a minute… What the hell??
Let me say it never snows in San Antonio. Never! And in the past when people would get all excited because the forecast called for a couple of snow flurries, nothing would happen. Nada. Zip. Zilch. And I’m cool with that, because I don’t like to be cold! Anyway, It’s gotten to the point whenever someone even hinted at snow in SA I would automatically tune them out. I even told a few people this time around that there was no way it was going to snow this time around. I was wrong.
I know it’s nothing compared to what, say, the New England area gets, but an inch of snow in San Antonio is a big deal. It’s even a bigger deal because people here don’t know how to drive in the white stuff. So tow-truck drivers had a field day today picking up cars and collision centers across the city are no doubt licking their chops with all the business about to head there way. I think I heard something in the neighborhood of 200 car accidents? Who knows what the final tally was.
So I guess Al Gore was right about Global Warming. Or at least I heard that is what’s responsible for all this snow. Makes sense, right? NOT. Go to hell, Al Gore. It’s one of the coldest winters in recent history! I’m definitely not a believer. I wonder how much money this guy has reeled in from convincing people of this crap?
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some hot cocoa that needs heating.
