Keep your head up all you guys in bottom boot of Louisiana and southern region of Mississippi. Watch out for falling trees and flying roof debris. If you been through Hurricane Katrina you know what I mean. You guys in the north have it good.
And snow. And lake effect snow. I'll take the occasional hurricane to the absolute certainty of snow. At least when it floods, the water eventually goes away. It doesn't just sit around in huge piles getting uglier, dirtier, and then flooding and going away.
I had to go to Solon, Ohio in November, a few years back. Record levels of lake-effect snow. I got home, and I thanked Mom and Dad for being in the first wave of Yankees that headed south in the early '60's.
