You know you live in New Orleans when you get passed by a junky car that is emitting a fog of smoke. . . . . . and it has a brake tag.

No emissions laws. Joy.

You know you live in Cleveland, Ohio, when you get in you car with 3 feet of snow on the ground and it's still coming down at 3 feet an hour, and you drive 10 minutes and *poof* You have clear skies, sunshine, and no snow whatsoever on the ground.

You know you live in the Redwoods when they fall on your house. (can't find the photo) or resort as in the Miranda Gardens Resort. Someone had just left the lobby when a tree fell right through it.
