Glad to live up here when I here of those Gulf Storms or Tornados bussing thru town. We have a bad Fire Season but at least we can fight back to save the place or just prepare the place so you don't get burned out. I like the snow during the winter!! If I did not it would be depressing to live here in the winter. Just looked out the window and we are getting some right now. Mark H.
