Out of the Blue

Flooding in the southeast (poor New Orleans!) and wildfires on the west coast are the latest disastrous weather headlines from what has been an intense summer and autumn (and we haven't even had a hurricane make landfall!). Meanwhile, the outlook around here remains fair and mild, more or less as it has been for months now. Again, this is nothing to complain about, but with other areas of the country facing such problems, it is enough to inspire one to feel a little guilty.

You know, that is one thing I am glad about MN (and Midwest) peeps.

We hike up our boots, and deal with it.

Floods ravaged Southern MN this year (again), but didn't make much national attention. We dealt with it in our MN nice way. People helped people, we didn't look for handouts, and we moved forward. (But I still criticize some of those people for living along the Mississippi and say, "yeah, we have rebuilt 5 times")

Glad to be in the Midwest.

fires don't discriminate based on how much money you have.
Nope, Location, Location, Location. As I stated - maybe you didn't look at that Malibu disasters website I linked....doesn't make sense to live there obviously.

/elf - hope your family is ok, sounds like they are prepared, unlike many others. I am fine with people living there, but then bitching about bad things that happen when they happen over and over and over is just stupidity. As WH said, just depends on where you live. He obviously knows WTF he is doing.
