“I'm sure the devestation from California's brush fires are anything but "boring".”

“Well we (California, Southern California specifically) might be boring when it comes to weather, I mean, if we get 1/2 an inch of rain the local news is on "Storm Track" lol. However, we DO have the Santa Ana winds, which by themselves are nothing less than annoying, until you throw in the wildfire to go with it. I watched the fires burn from a couple weeks ago from my kitchen window, and I can assure it it was nothing close to boring. Waking up to a huge plume of white smoke (that's the bad smoke) and hearing possible evacuation orders or volunteer evacuation orders will give you more excitement than you might care for. :0) Don't forget our earthquakes either. You guys might have your extreme weather, but when an earthquake is going to hit, we don't have any advanced warning, one minute it's all good and the next your shaking around,,,not too much fun. Florida's got some fairly extreme weather as well. They do get some massive hurricanes. So while we may not get the same weather phenomenons as ya'll, I would say our existence is far from calm and boring. BTW, I'm not giving you crap or making a negative comment, just correcting what I sense to be a ill-conceived perception of living here...lol.”
“I am from Cape Cod, Masschusetts/ Born and brought up here. HurrIcanes, and No'Earthersers - My questione is: WHY dont' these people,, living in Tornado Country, have Basements? Or as we call them,"Cellars"?”

“I live in Texas and the water table is too high in parts of the state to put in a basement. Those who choose to do so have to pay an exorbitant price that includes a sub pump. I don't think a storm cellar is much help in an F5 either.”

“In some cases it's because it's nearly impossible to excavate the rock out of the way to create a basement (Remember Baby Jessica in 1987? Even specialized drilling equipment barely managed to penetrate the rock), while in others it's a matter of the water table (like in New Orleans and many coastal areas)...etc. In other words it is not necessarily an oversight or choice so much as it is an impossibility.”

“Cellars don't always help an f5 tornado can suck you right out of a cellar.”
