West coast-East coast rivalry over today’s quake:


As if New Yorkers aren’t arrogant enough; now they’ve “survived an earthquake.” So what?! We had a bigger disaster – the Kardashian wedding.

    It’s like when Atlantans are paralyzed over an inch of snow and their complaints make Buffalonians groan.

    I know ’cause I was once a Buffalonian. 😉

    I was your one-time neighbor in upstate NY (Rochester) and I groan when Maryland schools shut down at the sign of the first snow flake.

    Ah, so you know.

    I also lived near Syracuse, in the little town of Skaneateles, NY. I swear we had more snow there than we had in Buffalo.

    I’m from Boston, MA, which definitely does not get as much snow as Buffalo, but we get some amazing Nor’easters; and I went to college in Washington DC. What a joke when a dusting brought everything to a halt!

    But I must say, since that time, that area is getting one hell of a lot more snow than when I went to college. I’m pretty sure they don’t shut down for dustings anymore!

    It’s funny you mention DC getting more snow than they used to. Buffalo gets less than when I lived there. Buffalo used to be legendary for its accumulation. My friend who still lives there was telling me last winter that it’s just not like that anymore.

    Of course, a week after he told me that they got hammered with lake effect snow. Hah!

    The effects of global warming are weird. We (Boston) don’t get as much snow either.

    As an aside, we here in New England, especially near the coast, have to a large extent (well, perhaps I am speaking for myself) pooh-poohed Buffalo’s snow. Lake effect? Pah! Let them try a Nor’easter for once!
