Well, the question of whether or not the BP oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico is going to cause "black rain" has apparently been answered. There have now been numerous video reports of it raining oil on parts of Louisiana and Florida. The video that you are about to watch below is absolutely jaw dropping.

The snow storm deposited between 15 and 30 inches of snow throughout the mid-Atlantic region on December 19th. It was the biggest snow storm ever recorded in December in Washington D.C., and there were over 4000 traffic accidents in the state of Virginia alone due to the poor conditions.
