Carole Meekins: Positively Milwaukee

Wisconsin Weather Advantage

  • Print
As we watch the fierce wildfires raging in California, those of us in the Midwest can only imagine the horror. With more than a half million people evacuated and more than 1 billion dollars in damage, it's hard to imagine such destruction. Many severe weather episodes can be horrifying. But the threat of fire is just horrifying! Whenever those of us from the Midwest travel throughout the country the first thing you hear about is how cold it must be. Some feel sorry for me saying it must be tough to endure the cold. Others are shocked when I admit I love snow, even cold weather. But I bet thousands in the Golden State would rather be with cold and snow about right now. Personally, if I have a choice between a blizzard and a raging inferno, I will take the blizzard. At least you will be able to see your house when the weather subsides. All day we have heard that the Santa Ana winds are blowing in relief. But it's too late for the thousands who have lost their memories.
