The Day After Tomorrow

I know, I'm a little behind the times. Finally saw "The Day After Tomorrow". Apropos considering I'm sitting at home with yet another "meteorlogical alert" flashing red across my screen on the Weather Network. Freezing rain, 'natch. Coupled with the whole tsunami disaster in Thailand, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, and India was a report that large, lawn-size patches of grass are appearing in Antarctica. Jesus. I know the movie was fictional, but you have to admit the weather has been a little freakin' weird the past couple of years, and getting weirder by the day.

Oddly enough, the only part of the movie I found too unbelievable was when the Americans get stopped at the border to Mexico....and the US gov't has to ask permission to evacuate their people there. Huhuh? Don't think so. It would be like "Okay, Juan...take a hike. This here is our country now."
