The weather in the Midwest sucks. Besides having to deal with these floods and tornadoes, they also suffer much hotter summers than we do. Let’s not even mention their brutal winters. We have not heard from any of the people that relocated to one of those states. They always come on this South Florida forum to tell us how great it is to live there and how inexpensive their mcmansion was. I guess they’re figuring out the reason housing in those areas are so cheap.

OK, never mind. I clicked on the comment section of the Maine flood and it took me to the comments of the Midwest floods. Sun-Sentinel screwed up, not you.:)
