Where I Quote Myself...

It dawned on me earlier today that within the span of less than one month, we've had both and earthquake and a hurricane here in the Northeast. Now, I'm not one to complain (stop laughing), but there's a reason we put up with several feet of snow and sub-zero temperatures for five months out of the year here. That reason is that we DON'T get the Super Fun Happy Weather Rides like other areas of the country get. Florida and Texas are nice and warm in the winter months - and they have to contend with hurricanes that redistribute trailer parks across several counties.

So, please be keeping your weather to yourselves, or we will be forced to start exporting blizzards. You have been warned...

That is all.

Think of my disappointment, we just relocated up here to NH to enjoy 4 seasons, none of which were named Tornado or Hurricane. But the kids were the most disappointed. They were looking forward to their first day of school being cancelled because of snow, not because of power outages.

We are spreading the wealth around.
Enjoy it while there is some wealth left.

As long as it is just your blizzards I think I'm okay with it.

Just don't export the majority of your residents*, eh?''


* request does not apply to gunnies, of course.

Clinton said...

Not even the residents i'm worried about. Snow? No problem. You exporting your states gun laws?? That has me shaking in my boots..

What Bob S. said.

Since we have blizzards, earthquakes AND volcanoes (not to mention seven months of winter), I'm okay with spreading the wealth around. At least a little. :^)

My wife, originally from Wisconsin, says "Bring it, Bitch!"

She misses the snow.

Dustin said...

You haven't had a massive tornado system yet in the last month, so there is no need to include Alabama in the blizzard threat, right?

Alan said...

Comparing the extremely unlikely tornado with the certainty of heavy snow and apparently earthquakes and hurricanes, I'll take my chances in Texas.

Y'all can keep both the weather AND the majority of your population... Just sayin... and check your voicemail.

We don't get hurricanes in SA, we get hurricane evacuees.

I'd almost rather have the weather.

Not many tornadoes, either, and the handful we've had over the course of my lifetime have been tiny and caused next to no damage, except perhaps to the stray pinata.

However, we do have an incurable infestation of Democrats and race-baiters. But that's okay, 'cause at least the food is good.

We've been having our own earthquakes around here. Y'all can keep that blizzard crap. And it's the tornadoes (torn-aye-duhs, in the local tongue) that redistribute trailer parks;)

Counties? Heck there was stuff taken from Beaumont into Louisiana during Rita.

We're supposed to get the winter of the end times according to a friend.

Might even SNOW.

Might even stick for A WHOLE DAY!

My Iowan roots are, "so?"

"...spreading blizzard or near-blizzard conditions over parts of Tennessee, West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina," including "what may well be a record amount of heavy, wet snow"

Colorado-No hurricanes, no floods, no tsunamis, 315 days of sunshine annually, an occasional tornado, a couple of blizzards every year, reasonable gun laws, and wide open spaces to shoot in.

firedigger,

Define "reasonable gun laws".

You forgot all the liberals.
