A few days ago, I was griping about the lousy weather here; after reading this CNN story about the storm that plowed through Europe, I changed my mind. Nobody DIED in this area; 34 people across Europe were killed by storms with 160 k/mph winds and severe rains. Thousands are still without electricity, and mass transit was hit hard, with airports cancelling dozens of flights and trains halted due to debris on the tracks. I had no idea the storm was so bad until I read Stars and Stripes (The US military-produced paper) this morning.
Of course, the pic I sent Susanna Cornett (posted on Cut on the Bias) doesn't bolster my griping about the weather, but it was nice (albeit cold) last month. (grin)
