We vary between wet and dry years. We have droughts, which can bring on a lot of wildfires with them. During wet years we have a lot of tornadoes and thunderstorms. Blizzards occur almost every winter. Earthquakes are somewhat common, but rarely cause damage. During the summer you wear shorts and t-shirts, and in winter you need boots and thick jackets. These disasters are so common that eventually they just become part of life. Tornadoes are entertainment for most of us. Weather doesn't impact us much, only because we are used to it. Redneck livin'!
