Sandy Bears Down on the East Coast

Hurricane Sandy is bearing down on the northeastern United StatesAs Hurricane Sandy bears down on the northeastern United States, we here in the Northern Plains can sympathize, at least to a point.

No, we don’t get hurricanes here, and we wouldn’t know what to do if we did.

But we can get tornadoes in the summer and blizzards in the winter, both of which require some serious preparation on our part.
