As much as I complain about the winter weather in Maine, I'll take it any day compared to other areas! Sure it gets cold, and we have lots of snow, but we know it's coming. We get a couple days notice that there's going to be a lot of snow, and everyone has the chance to go buy every bit of milk and bread in the store! If it's cold, we put on lots of clothes!

Now compare that to this tornado that was in Kansas! No warning, other than conditions are ripe for tornadoes! Earthquakes.. no thanks! Gimme Maine!

Severe weather moved through the Plains states over the weekend, bringing high winds, heavy rains and tornadoes. Two twisters were spotted Saturday evening near Rozel, a sparsely populated area in central Kansas. (May 19)
