Among the insults that would raise the ire of any true Northwesterner in this article are these : "Color Seattle Clueless" and "The City has always marched unarmed into it infrequent battles with snow".

These fearful Los Angeles residents are completely freaked out by rain. Consider some of the "warnings" in the LA Times today:
" Debris and trash make their way into the ocean whenever it rains."
