The weather in this part of the midwest has been rather nasty for the past week or so and has gotten worse overnight. Must be five or six inches of snow and it is blowing with wind gusting to 16, now 12 and averaging 11mph. Only about 13F degrees at 1:30 in the afternoon.
If there is any consolation in this, it is that this cold and some snow is reaching nearly to the gulf coast and hopefully the jackasses who think the XL pipeline is still a good idea are also freezing their asses off.
The ultimate Democratic insult to those who care about the earth and safe drinking water and rational energy policies is that these conniving bastards in congress will consider supporting the XL pipeline to aid getting a Landrieu? from Louisiana into the US Senate. This is just plane dispicable partisan politics at the lowest possible level without regard to anything that makes any sense.
As for Democratic Senators and Republican retrograde senators and congressmen, a pox on both your houses.
