When I got up this morning it was 37 degrees outside. I'm less than 50 miles from the Mexican border, it should not be 37 degrees outside. Looking back on it the last few weeks here in southern Arizona has been kind of chilly or at least more chilly than I remember it in the past.
I was really counting on global warming to fix problems like this. I remember when Al Gore was vice president and he said in 20 years the polar ice caps would melt and parts of New York City would be underwater. So I figured with heat like that the country would be a lot warmer and I wouldn't have to shovel snow where I used to live in Colorado because the winters would be warm and comfortable.
But unfortunately it turned out that the winters in the Colorado mountains weren't warm and comfortable in fact it snowed just like it always did and I ended up leaving there because it was too cold. So now I'm sitting in the Arizona desert next to a heater, wearing a coat wondering what went wrong. And if all that wasn't disappointing enough it appears that New York City STILL isn't underwater.
