The Weirdest of Weird Weather

There’s some pretty weird weather around the country this week – tornadoes in the South, flooding in Fargo, spring-break-snow in Kansas and swarms of earthquakes* in Southern California

Wondering what could possibly be weirder? Well, check out this list of ten cases of extreme weather. Guess who holds the record for highest snowfall in North America? Hint: it’s a peak in propinquity to us here in Portland.

*Okay so an earthquake isn’t “weather,” but I wasn’t going to clutter the sentence with “and geological phenomena.” P.S. Does anyone else think that describing them as “swarms” gives earthquakes an eery sort of personification?
