The weather page in last Sunday's Trib had an interesting Q&A section by Tom Skilling, resident weather guy.
Which state has the worst weather? Florida, maybe, because of hurricanes?
There is no single, satisfying answer. To borrow from a cliche, bad weather is in the eye of the beholder. It is probably unfair to judge a state's climate based on just one kind of weather event when so many weather occurrences can be dangerous or just plain troublesome. It's true, though, that Florida experiences more hurricane activity than any other state.
Having spent the majority of my formative years in that state, I believe I am a stronger, hardier person as a result of surviving all of the above. What say you?
