Without Ice

Atlantic Ocean

Bart looked left and right at the majestic Atlantic Ocean, the blue skies and hot sandy beaches. It was 90 degrees. He told the real estate agent, “I suppose if the global economy heats up so much that the ice caps melted then all of these high-rise condos would turn into part of the Everglades.”

“I’ve been waiting for it to happen for over two decades.”

“This place could sink into the ocean. I wonder who’d want to live here then?”

“I’m sure the alligators wouldn’t mind.”

Bart agreed with the agent: Better buy while the ground’s still dry.


Linked to Carrot Ranch. The theme this week for the 99-word stories is “without ice”.

  1. Storms are coming sadder
    Put Huge Monstrous Tornados

    True Coastal
    Regions
    aren’t much
    Safer Particularly
    When Hurricanes Swirl
    Almost as Fast as F4 Tornadoes..
    Category 6 is coming soon Label or
    No Label as Mother Nature is Bruised
    And She refuses to be Disabled for much longer..:)
