Al Gore answers questions about the snow in 49 out of 50 states… Sort of… Well, not really.


There's Snow in 49 States

 

There’s snow in 49 states right now, covering some 69.4 percent of the contiguous United States. Even Hawaii has snow , though it’s on a volcano so it’s sort of cheating. Can you guess which state is ruining our perfect record?

Florida! Yes, dumb old Florida is snow-free, making it the New York Giants to the snow’s 07-08 New England Patriots. Thirty-two states have winter weather advisories! There’s snow in Hawaii (on Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa), Texas, California and Louisiana! Every state is pitching in to make this a real American snowpocalypse, and Florida is just sitting it out.

Oh well. Forty-nine out of 50 is still pretty good. And pretty rare. CNN’s Angela Fritz calls it “extremely unusual,” though since meteorologists don’t keep track of awesome statistics like “how many states have snow in them,” it’s hard to say how unusual.

 

Why so much snow? Well, the CIA weather ray appears to have created two storms a few days ago—one in the Midwest and one in Texas. Both storms travelled eastward on Obama’s command and are meeting tonight in the Northeast, where everyone is freaking out.

The map above, via Google Maps and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, shows snow cover and is shaded for depth. Below you can see maps of snow density and precipitation over the last 24 hours.

Questioning With Boldness tried to contact Al Gore for some comments on the unusual weather but it would seem that he isn’t taking any questions.

Currently in hiding, Al Gore refuses to take any questions about the unusual weather.

 Hopefully he doesn’t happen to run into any angry polar bears up there…
