Yes, Americans need more variety in their insults. I'm a little tired of being called a "stuck up bitch." I feel like a pariah; I'm not American enough for most Americans, I'm too American for the rest of the world!
I don't need to travel anywhere to experience other climates. Springfield, Missouri, has officially been named as the city in the US that has the most rapidly changing weather. We had a couple pleasant days here (temperature made it to about 38 F, or...3-4 C?), but the temperature will be dropping rapidly to single digits (F, of course) as we get about eight inches of snow. Hopefully, it'll get back up to the 40s next week and we can melt the snow. Who knows, it might even head into the 50s. Missouri is known for the rapidly changing weather though - Mark Twain said "If you don't like the weather, wait five minutes - it will change," and it's just about true. He was from the northern part of the state too, it's not as bad up there. Sometimes I remember longingly what it was like to live in Las Vegas, where the seasons were hot and windy, hot and dry, hot and windy again, and really warm and dry. Snow was so rare that I still remember the one time it happened - December 6, 2000. My sister woke up, looked outside, ran to wake my mom up, and told her someone had put salt all over the ground.
