Global Warming causes earliest snowfall ever in Boise, Idaho

Is there any other explanation for this?:

This is the earliest measurable snowfall in Boise since recordkeeping began in 1898, according to the National Weather Service. At 10 p.m., the Weather Service said 1.7 inches of snow had fallen.

The previous earliest recorded snowfall was Oct. 12, 1969, when a little more than an inch fell.

Right now global warming just forced me to put on a sweatshirt...we all know how brutal SoCal autumns can be.

Well there could be another explanation. Al Gore could have just come to town.

Do you think it's a poetic justice thing when the weather gets cooler when he's around, or is it just that his fat head blocks out the sun?

RE: Global Warming

Dear Concerned Citizen,

Due to the increasing number of record snowfalls, record low temperatures, and Sharon Cobb's credibility coming in at an astonishing Absolute Zero, we must now refer to natural changes in the five day forecast as being caused by Global Climate Change.

In fact, any time the weather does something weird we're pretty sure it's because of that 1977 Chevy Silverado we saw on the way to buy soy milk at Whole Foods the other day.

We used to call him Jesus but now we call him Jeff. The wine tastes the same.


All of Us

Personally, I am outraged.


It seems like sock puppetry has hit This Goes to 11.

Whoever participates in this kind of internet deception is the lowest kind of troll.

The absolute lowest.

He/she should be banned from blogs forever.

I found the weather a bit refreshing and eye opening. Winter is coming! I am sure it could be global warming but it is what it is. As long as we keep on a burning that is not going to change. NO Al Gore did not come to town :-) and what is Nigel's deal?
