But a few days of shivering are a small price to pay for a climate that is superior to most others in this country. In fact, it gave us South Carolinians a chance to experience some of those temps we see when watching weather broadcast from Minnesota or North Dakota -- on a temperate ...

Generally, when someone makes such a call, they simply want more hyphenated Americans.
