My dad lives in a double wide trailer in Florida. As you can imagine, I worry about him every time a storm blows through the state. All he got from the last one is some much needed rain, so that's a good thing.
There's an old joke that god hates trailers. That's why he steers so many tornadoes and hurricanes towards them. If I was rich, I'd put a trailer park about a half mile from my mansion so that storms would steer towards them. Lately, however, it seems severe storms have been hitting some pretty high priced real estate.
Those of us in the mountains of New Hampshire used to think we were immune from tornadoes. The weather service though so too. Thanks to everyone waking around with mini movie cameras on their phones, we now have proof that tornadoes do hit us in the mountains. We don't even need to live in a trailer park.
Since hurricanes Irene and Sandy did so much damage, some of us now watch hurricane season almost as much as Floridians. This is too much. At Florida doesn't get blizzards . . . yet!
Nasty weather isn't just for trailer parks anymore. It seems anyone could get hit with anything anywhere.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
