Ice, Ice, Baby!

Antarctica Frozen Wave Pixs -
The water froze the instant the wave broke through the ice.
That's what it is like in Antarctica where it is the coldest weather in decades.
Water freezes the instant it comes in contact with the air.
The temperature of the water is already some degrees below freezing.
Just look at how the wave froze in mid-air!!!
Icebergs in the Antarctic area sometimes have stripes, formed by layers of snow that react to different conditions.
Blue stripes are often created when a crevice in the ice sheet fills up with meltwater and freezes so quickly that no bubbles form.
When an iceberg falls into the sea, a layer of salty seawater can freeze to the underside.
If this is rich in algae, it can form a green stripe.
Brown, black and yellow lines are caused by sediment, picked up when the ice sheet grinds downhill towards the sea.

Della,

You should be more careful. You dared to say that this was one of the coldest winters in decades.

The global warming Nazi are sure to try to black list your blog or maybe even call you a heretic or a denialist.

If I were you I'd get ready to defend yourself. If you keep this up, it might slow down the 100 million plus that Al Gore has earned for himself by preaching the Global Warming lies.

Mike-
Do you think getting my blog black listed would increase my blog hits?
If I'm not careful I'm gonna have the nutrasweet gods and the global warming czars all mad at me.
Maybe I should just come out and say "NUTRASWEET WILL KILL YOU AND GLOBAL WARMING IS A BIG FAT LIE!"
What do you think?
