Just when you’ve thought you’ve heard everything, snow conspiracy? Yep I said snow conspiracy. Shakes piggy head. I was watching a local television news show here in Atlanta on WSB TV this weekend. They were reporting that this nighmare of a snow ‘storm’ we had last week was a hoax. Do you hear me? A hoax.
Let me present exhibit A to the right here. This is a picture of part of my magical backyard. Notice the “conspiracy” snow in the picture? Looked real to me. Heck, it felt real to my hooves when I was outside running around in it. Of course, I don’t have anything to compare it to because it was my first snow but it felt and looked real to me. And OMP (oh my pig) – I tasted this conspiracy snow. What will happen to me? Who do I need to call? Am I going to blow up or become a mutant? What will this piggy do?!
So are you wondering what this conspiracy theory is about? WSB TV reported the following:
“The conspiracy reasoning goes like this: the snow is unusual in Georgia and other southeast areas and doesn’t melt when burned. Therefore, it must be fake snow.”
WOW. Considering that reasoning, even this oinker has to scream conspiracy – rolls piggy eyes. Yes it’s true. Atlanta got what 2.5 inches of snow and literally shut down with the highways being parking lots. There’s reasoning behind that – really there is. I’ve thought long and hard about the situation. I mean heck I had a lot of time on my hooves with being snowed in this past week – snorts. Let’s discuss.
1 – Atlanta is in the south. We just *don’t* get snow that often. I think the last time mom and dad remembers snow it was in 2008. That’s a long time ago considering how often other places get snow.
2 – Most places have more than one snow truck. Our snow truck works. I’m sure it’s a great snow truck. But you see Bubba only drives it what every 5-6 years and this year he lost the keys. By the time he found them, highways were now parking lots.
3 – That 2.5 inches that fell here was a LOT to us. Consider what my friend Nylablue in Canada who has had 8 FEET recently. Our 2.5 inches is like having 8 FEET. We just don’t deal with it very well in any way. Heck in reality, seeing one itty bitty snowflake here shuts us down completely. And I do mean completely. You even mention snowflake on the local news and it’s a mad house. The grocery stores are bombarded like someone saying free doughnuts at Krispy Kreme. Shivers – that should be a conspiracy theory.
4 – Did anyone think that perhaps it wasn’t a conspiracy theory by the government? Maybe it was an alien takeover? Perhaps Bigfoot sneezed? Maybe the clouds cried? And here’s a big could have been. Perhaps all of the people that use dandruff shampoo washed all of their dandruff down the drain and the drain finally exploded? Yeah, that could happen.
As you can tell, I’ve had a lot of time to think this over. And let me finally present to you exhibit B to the left. You knew there was going to be something Mickey Mouse in this post – snorts. This is one of mom’s statues on the back deck of my magical backyard.
Perhaps the conspiracy snow was well snow… real snow fallen from the sky in a place in the south that just doesn’t get much snow.
WOW – That almost makes so much sense that it doesn’t sound real. hhhmm – conspiracy snow anyone?

Same conspiracy going on here in Denver! Snow expected all week, and the last snow hasn’t melted yet. Unusual for here.
02/02/2014 at 9:16 pm
oohh noo!!! I wasn’t ready to post this yet. Snorts. That’s what happens when you try to watch the Super Bowl and do a posting at the same time. I’m just not a multi-tasked piggy. Darn these hooves! XOXO – Bacon

LOL! I hope your team wins. Major sporting events take precedence! 🙂
02/03/2014 at 1:23 am
Well..stomps hooves. They didn’t win. But the commercials and halftime were good. XOXO – Bacon
02/03/2014 at 5:15 am
Conspiracy…hmmmm I love a good one myself…must be like the heat we have..we aren’t actually physically melting but we ain’t exactly cool…..what a hoot!!! hugs Fozziemum xxxxx
02/03/2014 at 9:04 am
See, the government has hit ya’ll as well. Sneaking guys aren’t they? Snorts. XOXO – Bacon
02/03/2014 at 8:29 pm
The government always are Bacon :0 hugs Fozziemum xx
02/03/2014 at 6:01 am
There’s some more conspiracy snow falling here right now. I’m getting my tummy ready for a shock, in case it really gets to 8 inches. That’s belly-height. *shiver*
Love and licks,
02/03/2014 at 9:07 am
Oh dear Cupcake. That is a lot. What am I talking about? I think 2.5 INCHES took me to my hooves. (I would say knees but they are so close to my hooves – snorts!). I’ve done snow – even if it was conspiracy snow. I don’t need to relive that again. Once was enough. Give me my t-shirt. XOXO – Bacon
02/03/2014 at 7:27 am
Fake snow? Have you seen the “made in china”tag on it? I agree with you 2.5 inches are our 8 feet (poor Nylablue&mom). Even 0.5 inches can be the reason for a traffic snarl in my area. But currently they say it’s too cold for snow here ( I can’t believe that I like that). Stay warm and comfy, brother, I hope Miss Spring will come like the cavalry to bail us out of this misery :o)
02/03/2014 at 9:09 am
Too cold for snow? What an oxymoron that is brother. I can’t believe that. You know since my romp in the back yard with the conspiracy snow, my belly has been itching. I wonder if my “Made in China” tag will start to show soon? Snorts. XOXO – Bacon
02/03/2014 at 8:53 am
I couldn’t help answering your question…I have never seen snow yet, it would be nice if the government makes fake snow here 😉
02/03/2014 at 9:12 am
Where are you from? Maybe I can contact the government and have them ‘send’ some your way. I had never seen it before this time. It wasn’t as much fun as I had anticipated. First – it’s cold – really cold. Second- it’s wet. Shivers. It was an experience. No more snow for this little oinker. XOXO – Bacon
02/04/2014 at 9:17 am
We are from a tropical country…there will never be snow here…ever.
02/04/2014 at 11:44 am
That is really good my friend. You are so not missing anything. This was my first snow. Shrugs piggy shoulders. It was okay. Done it. Don’t care to do it again if ever – snorts. XOXO – Bacon
02/03/2014 at 9:04 am
Wait, did somebody say “free doughnuts”?!!! 😉
02/03/2014 at 9:12 am
Snorticles. That is amazing. That got dad’s attention too. You must be related – snorts. XOXO – Bacon
02/03/2014 at 11:42 am
I didn’t think it was a conspiracy…sheesh, some people! But I will admit, I was flummoxed at how challenging it was to get around (accidents blocking roads, aside). For example, I think I had heard some people slept in c-stores and churches rather than walk a mile or two home…sorry, but that is difficult to for me understand (although I am sure there is a good explanation).
02/03/2014 at 12:19 pm
There were some children that didn’t even make it home from school! They slept overnight at school because they couldn’t get home and their parents couldn’t get to them. People slept in Krogers, churches, Home Depot – everywhere! All of the hotels in the area were sold out. AND everyone left their cars on the highways so they all got towed to different parts of Atlanta. It was and still is a nightmare. Some conspiracy huh? XOXO – Bacon

Snorticles – that’s *my* Nylablue – hogs and snout kisses. Where do these people come up with these conspiracies? We are just not made for snow in the south – there’s nothing to conspire on that. It’s like someone going to the beach and swimming everyday. If you didn’t live near a beach and had never done it before, you would back things up. Simple as that. Shakes piggy head. Some humans these days – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

02/03/2014 at 12:25 pm
Who is the dufus who tried to light snow on fire? I want names! Hilarious post, Bacon. We here in my part of California are the same about snow. Heck, we flip out if it goes below 30 degrees.
02/03/2014 at 12:31 pm
Exactly my friend! Finally someone with enough sense to know about conspiracy theories from the government – snorts. XOXO – Bacon
02/03/2014 at 3:17 pm
I’m still waiting for some of that conspiracy snow to show up here so I can play in it. We just finally got our first rain of the winter the other day. Maybe that rain was a conspiracy and it didn’t really happen.
02/03/2014 at 3:36 pm
It could be! OMP (oh my pig!) Just think of the possiblities. Did you lick said rain?! Will you become a mutant now like me? Snorts XOXO – Bacon
