Dear Al Gore

Dear Mr. Al Gore

I wish to thank you for your response to my previous letter. I realize that it is stressful to wake yourself from your annual winter hibernation, which is why you are scarcely to be found on the lecture circut during the winter months. Nonetheless, you took the effort to send some warmer air our way, and because of that we here in North Idaho have many reasons to rejoice since now our temperatures have returned to something resembling seasonal normality. I am especially thankful for not having to put out the extra expense of having my roof shoveled off twice within a single winter. So far once has been sufficient, although I hear that they had to call out the National Guard to help shovel off the schools because of the danger of roofs collapsing. As far as I know, we broke all previous records for snowfall, and if this doesn't cause them to pack up and leave, the Californians who have come here with their bad driving habits, then nothing will ever make them go. But please keep up the good work, Mr. Gore. As you can see in the above picture, our streets are now much more passable, although there there is still an enormous amount of snow on the ground. I also hear that our unfortunate, frost-bitten fellow Americans back east are experiencing some horrific sub-zero weather. Perhaps you can send them a blast of hot air to help them out?
