I feel sorry for the Midwest. Not. They are whining that "Mother Nature has been really cruel to our state" as a result of all the flooding. I bet that when Texas was receiving its 38 inches of rain they were saying, "I'm glad its them and not us." When Tropical storm Erin dropped ten inches of rain on my backyard, they probably said, "That's why I would never live along the Gulf."

I live in Minnesota and dealt with multiple power outages. I have family in Texas that dealt with the flooding.

I never say "that's why I wouldn't live along the gulf". Everyone has something. I grew up in CA where we had earthquakes, here in MN it's usually tornadoes.

I have family and friends all over the country, and when I hear about fires, floods, storms, earthquakes, or the many ways mother nature messes with us, I usually just pray.

But hey, that's just me.

But you're not the media who are almost having orgasms over the flooding there. I bet there's a news truck in every town trying to get images of people being swept away, houses collapsing, and children being plucked from trees with helicopters while the reporter talks about "the worst flooding in 150 years." They didn't say that while Erin dumped 10 more freaking inches of water into already swollen creeks and rivers, and six more people died.

You're right about one thing: There's something everywhere.
