Weather-shaming: The wussification of America?

One always risks the Earnest Brigade weighing in on these things, pointing out that There Were A Record Number Of Records Broken This Time; or, People Need To Be Warned So They Won’t Leave Their Pets Outside Because Flashing Banners On TV Screens Are An Important Tool For Public Authorities; or, of course, the all-purpose Children (Period Full Stop).

Plus, I live in southern California now, where the highs have been in the 70s (and the low in my neck of the woods has yet to dip below freezing this year).

So let me just say this: I recognize I’m occupying territory on which the Earnest Brigade may feel compelled to attack me.

That said, I felt a real rush of sympathy on reading Paula Bolyard’s “Survivors of the Blizzard of ’78 Mock the ‘Arctic Vortex’” at PJ Media.

So is it any wonder that Ohioans of a certain age yawn at some wind chill warnings and a bit of ice?

See the rest On the QT…
