It snowed today in Baghdad.
First time in a hundred years.
Well, I'm a bit worried. I was counting on global warming to improve the local climate here in Chicago. I figured we'd have palm trees lining State St. and orange groves in Grant Park.
Retirees would no longer move away to "somewhere warm."
Flamingos would arrive in a vast swarm.
Hurricanes, not blizzards, would be our chief form of storm.
Finally forever free of snow!
In a news flash
My hopes were dashed.
