Well, It's Official...

I think it's official - we Midwesterners don't deal with snow and ice very well.  Here in Oklahoma, at least, everyone is freaked out by patchy ice today.  There was a 14 car pile up in the Big City this morning.  And to look out the window, you can't even tell it's icy. 


Give us tornadoes and we haul out the lawnchairs and cameras - hell, we even chase the damn things down in our cars! 

Bake us to death at over 110F and we slather on the sunscreen and beat feet to the nearest waterhole. 

But heaven forbid we have to deal with a little ice and snow, LOL.  I'm sure you Northerners are laughing at us. I would be. 

And as if that weren't enough, we had earthquakes this morning too - only a 3.something on the Richter scale, but still. This is the Midwestern US, middle of the continent.... but we probably have at least as many earthquakes (minor I admit) as California. 

LOL.  Something for everyone.  Don't like the weather?  Wait a while....

Hey, I'm not complaining though - I get to go into work an hour late today.

Even here in Wisconsin, there are plenty of boneheads who don't know how to deal with the slick stuff. And this year has been very slick indeed.

The weather extremes here are awful. -25 in the winter and over 100 in the summer, with high humidity. I don't know why I stick around.
