Winter deaths and London's cursed patio heaters!

Before you liberals get excited, this article was written by the AP...not Fox News. - Snowstorm Cripples Nation's Midsection, Causes 40-Car Pileup, Leaves 4 Dead:

LUBBOCK, Texas — Yet another storm swept across the central United States, burying areas still recovering from an earlier wave of severe weather, tying up air travel and killing at least four people. A 40-car pileup on Interstate 40 in northern Texas that killed at least one person was caused by blowing snow that limited visibility and left icy patches Thursday, said Wayne Beighle, a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper.

The storm has been blamed for at least three other deaths: two in Texas and one in Oklahoma.

And in other news, the fruitcakes want to stop you cold London patrons from regaling in warmth; hey your warmth is causing warmth!
