WEATHER BULLETIN


Up here, in the "Mile-Hi City", we just recovered from a Historic event--may
I even say a "Weather Event" of "Biblical Proportions"--with a historic
blizzard of up to 44" inches of snow and winds to 90 MPH that broke trees in
half, knocked down utility poles, stranded hundreds of motorists in lethal snow
banks, closed ALL roads, isolated scores of communities and cut power to 10's
of thousands.


FYI:


George Bush did not come.


FEMA did nothing.


No one howled for the government.


No one blamed the government.


No one even uttered an expletive on TV.


Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton did not visit.


Our Mayor did not blame Bush or anyone else.


Our Governor did not blame Bush or anyone else, either.


CNN, ABC, CBS, FOX or NBC did not visit - or report on this category 5
snowstorm. Nobody demanded $2,000 debit cards.


No one asked for a FEMA Trailer House.


No one looted.


Nobody--I mean Nobody--demanded the government do something.


Nobody expected the government to do anything, either.


No Larry King, No Bill O'Reilly, No Oprah, No Chris Mathews and No Geraldo
Rivera.


No Shaun Penn, No Barbara Streisand, No Hollywood types to be found.


Nope, we just melted the snow for water.


Sent out caravans of SUV's to pluck people out of snow engulfed cars.


The truck drivers pulled people out of snow banks and didn't ask for a penny.


Local restaurants made food and the police and fire departments delivered it
to the snowbound families.


Families took in the stranded people--total strangers.


We fired up wood stoves, broke out coal oil lanterns or Coleman lanterns.


We put on extra layers of clothes because up here it is "Work or Die".


We did not wait for some affirmative action government to get us out of a
mess created by being immobilized by a welfare program that trades votes for
'sittin at home' checks.


Even though a Category "5" blizzard of this scale has never fallen this
early, we know it can happen and how to deal with it ourselves.


"In my many travels, I have noticed that once one gets north of about 48
degrees North Latitude, 90% of the world's social problems evaporate."


It does seem that way, at least to me.


I hope this gets passed on.


Maybe SOME people will get the message. The world does Not owe you a
living.

I am glad to see that you have survived your blizzard there in Colorado. I haven't seen that much snow and bad weather since I was on recruiting duty in Buffalo in the early 80s. I am appauled though that no body has come to your aide out there.
