Global warming, eh?
USA Today is reporting that 49 out of 50 US states have snow on the ground. Of course for Barack Obama that would be 49 out of 57 states. Of course some states have more snow cover than other, like areas of Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey that are getting hammered by the latest snowmegeddon. Other areas in the South like Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, North Carolina and South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas were also pounded by snow and ice and from the latest storm.

Snow is on the ground in 49 out of the 50 states — only the Sunshine State of Florida is completely snow-free, according to a map produced Thursday morning by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
(This doesn’t mean that those 49 states are snow-covered, of course, only that some part of each state has snow.)
Although this map doesn’t show it, there is snow in Hawaii, where webcams are showing snow on the high peaks of the mountain volcanoes of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea.
The map also doesn’t include Alaska, but it’s a given that most of that state is snow-covered this time of year. A quick check with the National Weather Service forecast office in Fairbanks found 19 inches of snow on the ground there.
But of course according to Al Gore and Barack Obama, it is settled science, it’s global warming.
