With the horrific tornadoes in the Central Plains recently I am so thankful to live in the true Midwest--Michigan.
Thanks to Lake Michigan, we largely miss tornadoes bigger than EF0 or EF1. Earthquakes? I've never felt one. Droughts aren't too terrible, again thanks to the big lake. Hurricanes are just heavy rain by the time they reach us. We may have high unemployment and car insurance, (my bill was just paid.) but few major natural disasters.
My thoughts and prayers are with the people in the Central Plains in the face of this terrible tragedy.
