A Foot of Global Warming

Don Surber in his post Snowstorm Parody asks the question: “How does New England like that foot of global warming?” I will be glad to answer. We are tired of shoveling and ready for a break after two major snowstorms in the space of three days. Somehow I think our region didn’t get the memo when it comes to global warming.

Surber goes on to answer his own question with a fun parody of the Beach Boys, “Surfin’ U.S.A.” Here is “Snowin’ U.S.A.”

If we really had global warming
Across the U.S.A.
Then everybody’d be surfing
Like Californi-a
Instead we’re wearing our parkas
Our gloves and mittens, too
Those trendy, trendy Ugg Ugg boots
Snowin’ U.S.A.

There’s more. Check out the rest of the song at Snowstorm Parody. Love them Ugg Ugg boots.

    That’s funny 🙂 The song, not the shoveling yourself out for two days. I just posted a “photo documentary” (using that description rather lightly, mind you) on Why People Move South on my blog today. A cold front moved into Central Florida yesterday, and I’ve been so chilled all day, even dressed in layers, I wonder why there are any people still living up north where it is really cold (and not just the pretend cold we have here).

    Hi eclexia,

    I just visited your site and enjoyed your post and “photo documentary.” (Link for those who are interested: http://eclexia.wordpress.com/2007/12/17/why-i-love-florida/)

    Actually, the photo of the patio furniture is exactly what our bird bath looks like right now.

    Stay warm! 🙂

    I would just like to know where Al Gore has been. Between all our snow over the past two weeks, I haven’t heard a peep about Global Warming in New England from him. Oh I know, he is attending some conference about Global Warming in Bali. Did he walk there or did he fly in a private jet and burn more fossil fuel in that one trip than my Large Gas Guzzling SUV will burn in its entire lifetime?

  4. Ray Fowler says:


    Yes. (The part about flying in the private jet.)

    I am guessing Al didn’t show up to help you plow during any of these storms? 🙂
