Slate declares its "America's Best Place to Avoid Death Due to Natural Disaster"
What can I say? I've always pointed out that Connecticut has the most "normal" weather in the country. Rare flooding, weak hurricane/tropical storm remnants, no earthquakes, no major forest fires, no mudslides, the occasional blizzard that only very rarely results in any deaths (and usually then it's either due to stupidity on the road, or infirmity to begin with)—basically, it's the place I'd want to live if I had a choice.

Oh, wait. I did have a choice—and I made it. Yay Connecticut!

Seriously, though, when I saw this article title come up in my podcast list (I highly recommend Slate's daily podcast, by the way), I immediately thought "Hmmm... I wonder if it's Connecticut? I'm always saying it's the ideal place to avoid catastrophic weather—maybe I'm right!" Sure enough...
