I have lived in the midwest all my life. To me bad weather is a blizzard. Blizzards suck, every once and a while the power goes out but in the end its just something you get use to. I cannot fathom what the residents of New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington DC, and all of the other states in the East Coast affected by Sandy. My thoughts and prayers goes out to everyone on the east coast.
