More Snow in Copenhagen

I hope I can say this without bringing down the wrath of the environmentalists on my head, but you have to admit, it's kind of funny that Al Gore's speeches and summits like Copenhagen seem to have an unfortunate tendency to be beset by cold snaps and blizzards.  Obviously, not totally surprising in Denmark, and no bearing on the arguments for or against climate change.  Just a little amusing, that's all.
