Citizens were confused by cold white particles falling from the sky today. Eldsters quickly identified this freak phenomena as snow – something that hadn’t been see outside greetings vids for years. Traffic chaos ensued.
This was part of a daring plan by the infamous Judge killer known simply as Whitey. Using a home-made device he hi-jacked Weather Control and summoned up a blizzard allowing him to escape maximum security prison Devils Island. Whitey injured a guard, killed his cellmate and a passing citizen, then took a hostage before being re-captured by Judge Dredd who was heard to say “[He’s] got the rest of his life to cool off.”
