Up here in the Northern Plains we just recovered from an Historic — may I even say a “Weather Event of Biblical Proportions” — with a blizzard of up to 24” inches of snow and winds to 50 MPH that broke trees in half, stranded hundreds of motorist in lethal snow banks, closed all roads, isolated scores of communities and cut power to tens of thousands of people.

George Bush did not come… FEMA staged nothing… no one howled for the government… no one even uttered an expletive on TV… Nobody demanded $2,000 debit cards… no one asked for a FEMA Trailer House… no news anchors moved in.

We just melted snow for water, sent out caravans to pluck people out of snow-engulfed cars, fired up wood stoves, broke out coal oil lanterns or Aladdin lamps and put on an extra layer of clothes.

Even though a Category “5” blizzard of this scale has never fallen this early… we know it can happen and how to deal with it ourselves.

Everybody is fine.
