The odds of a tornado hitting are so slim that it really shouldn’t be a factor when determining where to live.

Living on the east coast of Florida seems like a death wish to me. Maybe not a death wish. But you shouldn’t be surprised if your house gets fucked up.

Geezzz… I live in sunny California, you know? EARTHQUAKE Capital of the world… Okay, so I am wrong, that title goes to Alaska. Yet, statistics show, that we Californians live in a state that has the MOST damaging earthquakes… Add to that, we have NO idea when or where the next one may happen, only that it is going to happen. Does this make us a bunch of nutcases for living here? Hmmmm! Go figure…

It’s a great way to get a brand new trailer every year. Have you noitced that they seem to hit trailer parks more than anything? Is this God’s way of telling us not to live in trailer parks?

Sometimes we choose to live in these areas because local convenience stores stock our favorite magazines and beer. It is well worth the risk to live in these areas for that reason and because they climate wise is conducive to the wife beater T-Shirt that is so popular in these areas.
