Just As I Thought

Department of Snow Abatement

We in the Washington area have been using an amusing statistic this year: over the course of the winter, we had more snow then Denver, Colorado.
Not anymore.

The National Weather Service said 31.8 inches of snow accumulated in Denver, the heaviest snowfall since a December 1913 storm that dumped 471/2 inches of snow on the city over five days.

There are a significant number of people there stranded in their homes, unreachable. Houses have been lost to fire because they can’t be reached.
This has been a wacky year for weather. Like the economy and the state of the world, I blame President Bush. He’s been ignoring the weather, preoccupied with Iraq. I call for the President to re-order his priorities and ensure that it never snows like this again.
