The Day After Armaggedon… II. With a Vengeance. And Ice.

I just need proof sometimes. This says 62 degrees, right?

Okay, what’s going on?

I know I live in Chicago and should expect a constant change in weather, but this is ridiculous. When I woke up, the snow was melting so fast it was steaming. (Sorry, didn’t get to my camera fast enough for that one.)

This is a far cry from that ice storm Chicago was supposed to get. Sixty degree temperatures and overnight thunderstorms in January? If I didn’t see it with my own camera I wouldn’t believe it.

Don’t get used to it, either. In case you’re media-deprived and haven’t been near a television, radio or newspaper, WGN says to expect a fifty degree drop in the next 24 hours. (Insert your own Keifer Sutherland/Jack Bauer joke here.) Really, can we get a break here? I’m getting dizzy.

What’s with the world’s weather lately? Hurricanes in Florida? Tsunamis in the South Pacific? What’s next? This is it, right? The end of the world? Or are they just filming the sequel to The Day After Tomorrow? And will this paragraph be all questions? Looks like yes. Oh wait, no.

…And that movie was fiction, not a documentary, right?

Just checking.

    Tsunamis have nothing to do with the weather. Other than that: the weather is fucked up completely. Makes you wish government would take global treatises on climatic change and pollution seriously for a change.

    i really don’t care what tsunamis have to do with and don’t think the people affected by them do either

    That movie really sucked. The premise was cool, gobal ice age and all, but the delivery sucked hard. Weather is just really unpredictable. Browse through an almanac and you can see that this sort of thing just happens every now and then.. i’m not worried..
