The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

A heckuva record

I'm starting to think they should relocate FEMA permanently in Oklahoma, and this reinforces my belief:

This week's winter storm has allowed Oklahoma to set an apparent, if dubious, national record — that for presidential disaster declarations for one state in a calendar year.

That's right, folks: eight of 'em, with two and a half weeks left to go in 2007. Duh-worthy observation:

"Most states don't usually have to endure that many disasters," FEMA spokesman Earl Armstrong said.

Like I always say, the most perverse weather this side of Baffin Bay.

Yeah, we gripe about it. And then we clean up the mess and go back to work.
