    This is almost too funny for words! It was mentioned on a thread in Politics but I thought it deserved its own thread (and I don't much like the Politics Forum). Plus, I'm in the Wash DC area so it is very significant for me.

    There is just all kinds of irony in this plan to have a global warming protest and have it on the day Wash DC received the most snow it has in years! :tongue3:

    It's just too funny!

    Yes, but remember local climate is not necessarily indicative of global climate. For example, last winter, Houston, Texas had NO days below freezing for the first time ever. And here in Denver, we have had the lowest snow total for February EVER! Just a trace measured at the airport.

    I realize that but it is still funny that global warming protesters plan this huge event - the first environmental protest of the new administration - and get totally snowed out! The speaker couldn't even address them because she couldn't fly in due to weather.

    As Tim says, it shows God is in control.

    Thursday 5 March 2009 is expected to have a peak temperature in central Oklahoma 87-to-90-degrees-F. This number is as meaningless as the snow in the Washington D.C. area on 3 March 2009 in determining the average air temperature across & around the world for a whole year.

    No. actually it is rather sad that people don't notice when they are in over their heads.

    Marcia, I do! I think it's very funny, almost cartoonish. God does have a sense of humor at times. :laugh:

    If my memory is not failing, this is at least the third "global warming" event that I recall that has had to be canceled in the last three years because of the weather, including one "scientific conference."
