Wait, Are Those Locusts?

So now we’re getting a hurricane.  We aren’t supposed to get earthquakes or hurricanes  in this part of the country.  Now, I realize that those of you in who live in hurricane-prone or earthquake-prone locations may poo-poo the severity of our little disasters (although I defy to to listen to this story and not shudder in fear at the part about ‘there were Hot Wheels everywhere’)








but when was the last time any of you folks in California or the Gulf Coast had both in one week, hmmm?

Anyway, the deal I make living here is that I live through six months with the constant threat of Nor’easters, blizzards, and lake effect events with snowfall measured in feet, and in exchange I don’t deal with earthquakes, hurricanes, or wildfires.  Unlike some people around here, I don’t even complain about massive snowfalls and howling blizzards.  I even enjoy driving in blizzards and ice storms.  I assume that folks living in the Gulf Coast enjoy the excitement of watching the occasional splinter driven through tree trunks by high-speed winds but I don’t, thank you very much.
