I find it slightly amusing how New Yorkers and other large metropolitan residents want to bash and shake their heads when other parts of the country experience severe weather. They call us idiots for living in their so-called flyover states or in the Deep South, yet a strong thunderstorm warrants headline news when something happens to them. Now we have polar vortexes when before things were simply called winter or spring thunderstorms. This is nothing new.
