WeatherTalk: Northerners are not too tough when weather turns toasty
Should our heat wave make national news, be certain that folks watching in Dallas will laugh and laugh.
FARGO — The hot temperatures coupled with humidity yesterday and today have many of us struggling to keep cool. We northerners just are not used to these conditions. Some don't mind it, but many among us will suffer, complain or even whine their way through the heat wave. Should our heat wave make national news, be certain that folks watching in Dallas will laugh and laugh.
People of southern locations where hot weather is the rule instead of the exception are often the target of our own laughter when an inch of snow or a week of freezing weather sends their society into chaos. However, another side of this is revealed when we Northerners are subjected to typical Texas weather in summer. Texans and Southerners in general are not tough when it comes to cold winter weather. Likewise, Northerners as a whole are not tough when the weather turns toasty.
