Ahhh....got this today thought it was a neat statement.

Although I'll be heading home to South Dakota for about 2 weeks during Christmas...so I guess I better take my sled :wink: They've got snow and -25 windchills....haha...something I've grown un-familiar with living these past 3 years in Texas.... :shock:

SOUTH DAKOTANS ARE TUFF.....

Here in the Northern Plains we just recovered from a historic, may I
even say a "Weather Event" of "Biblical Proportions" with a terrible
blizzard that dumped up to 24" inches of snow with 50 mph winds that created
a whiteout beyond
hurricane proportions, that broke trees in half, stranded
hundreds of motorist in near-lethal snowbanks, closed all roads, isolated
scores of communities, and cut power to tens of thousands of people.

George Bush did not come . . .
FEMA staged nothing .
No one howled for the government .
No one even uttered an expletive on TV. . .
Nobody demanded $2,000 debit cards . . .
No one asked for a FEMA trailer home . . .
No national news anchors moved in . . ..

We just melted snow for water, closed Interstate 29, sent out
caravans to pluck people out of snow-engulfed cars, fired up wood stoves,
broke out oil lanterns or camp lamps, and put on an extra layer of clothes.

Even though a
"Category 5" blizzard of this scale has never before
overtaken the region this early in the "blizzard season," we know it can
happen, we know how to deal with it ourselves, and we didn't even give the
blizzard a name.

Everyone in South Dakota is fine
