Snow In Baghdad. Guess What Caused It?

And away we go!

Light snow flurries fell on Baghdad today for the first time in about 100 years, AFP reports. Residents were by and large delighted: “Snow falling in Baghdad in such a magnificent scene was beyond my imagination,” said one retiree. A local baker agreed: “This snow will bring pleasure to the people of Iraq. It’s beautiful!”

A restaurant owner told the AP he’d never seen snow before—and neither had his 80-year-old mother. “I don’t know whether or not it’s a lesson from God,” he said. Snowfall was also reported in western and central Iraq as temperatures plunged, and an Iraqi meteorologist speculated that the snow might be a side effect of global warming.

    And neither one of them has seen the Cubs win a World Series.

  2. If the Cubs win the World Series, I bet that will be proof of man caused global warming 😀
