Buenos Aires gets first snow since 1918
By BILL CORMIER, Associated Press WriterMon Jul 9, 7:20 PM ET
Thousands of Argentines cheered and threw snowballs in the streets of Buenos Aires on Monday as the capital's first major snowfall since 1918 spread a thin white mantle across the region.

"Despite all my years, this is the first time I've ever seen in snow in Buenos Aires," said Juana Benitez, an 82-year-old who joined children celebrating in the streets.

Argentina's National Weather Service said it was the first major snow in Buenos Aires since June 22, 1918, though sleet or freezing rain have been periodically reported in decades since.
One man stripped to his shorts to welcome the snow. Children scraped snow of cars and threw snowballs. Motorists honked horns, some with small snowmen on their hoods. Some fender benders were reported on slick suburban streets.

The snow followed a bitter cold snap in late May that saw subfreezing temperatures, the coldest in 40 years in Buenos Aires. That cold wave contributed to an energy crisis and 23 deaths from exposure.

We must sign this petition against climate change!


With the release of An Inconvenient Truth last May, Mr. Gore and the producers have managed to raise awareness of this crisis and our part in it to a level that will hopefully be sustained enough this year to warrant some real progress.

This petition will be sent by me to Mr. Gore directly to Nashville, TN, U.S.A at the end of this month to show him the amount of support people have for his work on the climate crisis, and to show their signatures pledging to help him that they will become climate messengers and begin the work necessary that must be done now to see positive change.

We can all do it this year. This can be the year we finally show our Earth that we truly do care for her.

Please sign this petition for your planet and make a commitment you will never regret

Do me a favor and please stop smoking the ALGORE blend of Cannabis Sativa. If you had bothered to read my post you would have reached the conclusion (even through your "purple haze") that I am not buying the GLOBAL WARMING bullshit ALGORE (one word) is selling/pushing.

When I was a wee young one I was told the Earth's climate was heading towards FREEZING. Since that DIDN'T happen the only other place for idiots like "ALGORE" to push their bullshit was a story called GLOBAL WARMING. Get it.. Global Warming my A$$?

Since we all know ALGORE is a FOOL Mariana, please ask yourself.. Who is the bigger fool, the fool or the fool who follows a fool?
