Once Upon a Time Snow in Miami

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. day!

Also on this date: in 1977 snow fell in Miami, Florida. This is the only time in the history of the city that snowfall has occurred.

The year 2004 brought us some more unusual weather in the movie The Day After Tomorrow.

Written and directed by Roland Emmerich and starring Dennis Quaid, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Emmy Rossum, the movie is about a climatologist (Quaid) who tries to figure out a way to save the world from abrupt global warming. He must get to his young son in New York, which is being taken over by a new ice age.

Special effects include tornados in Los Angeles, tidal waves, and a very quick freeze.

Here's the trailer:
