Thinking Cold Thoughts for 2007

Britain’s Meteorological Office announced that 2007 will be a record year for heat, and we will have that wonderful El Nino “weather phenomenon” to thank. So, in an effort to think cool thoughts, I’m passing on this picture from January 2005 of an ice storm’s effects.

This freezer-burned landscape was found along Lake Geneva in Switzerland. Apparently, the spray from the lake turned to ice, and subsequently ruined the day of the poor folks who parked by the water.
