    I thought I would start this thread to see where the rest of you are and what you all go through in these winter months to live where you do. I saw someone mentioning the power going out in rain storms, some shoveling snow, some cold, some wet snow (slush), etc.

    We had B-B gun sized hail here last week, a lot of rain, and a temperature above 46 degrees. Here in central California we don't get much bad things, a little flooding if a river dike breaks, a good shaking from a quake, freeway collapse, a mud slide, or a forest fire. We usually do not freeze, or lose power, no snow cept on the highest peaks. Mostly good weather, even in the winter. Today was nice and warm and sunny. I can durn near go year round in sandals, short shirts, and short pants (cept long pants for Nov., Dec., & Jan.).

    I don't understand why you people stay in those freezing temperatures and endure all that bad weather, or so it seems to me. Even Oregon is a place where it is always raining. I spent a year there & was glad to get out. Washington state always raining. Nevada is too hot & too cold, Arizona is pretty good year round. Maryland struck me as too humid in the summer. Kansas has bitter cold winters. Virgina was a little cold in the summer I was there. Alaska was just plain cold. Hawaii is warm & humid, and rains everyday for about an hour.

    We had a couple of tornadoes on the other side of town yesterday morning...

    More Dangerous Tornado Season Expected This Year
    Mar 1, 2011 – The 2011 tornado season has started quickly, with more reports of damage from storms and twisters in the past two days than there were during all of the first two months of 2010 -- a trend likely to continue well into spring.

    Mar 1, 2011 – A cement block sits where Patrick Shipley's head usually rests on his pillow. Massive shards of roof cover the sink area of the master bathroom, where his wife usually stands to take out her contacts before bed.

    You could really benefit by my Blue Moon Emergency Tie Down kit. For a one time payment of just $299.99, you get the ropes, stakes, and bonus hammer, plus a set of lifetime Ginsu pearl looking handled set of knifes. Not only will your house be there after a tornado, but it will lower your home insurance and give you a sense of security.
