It seems like there has been a lot of awful weather around the U.S. the past few years. Are there any numbers to support that?

A recent study shows taxpayers (through the federal government) spent $100 billion dollars for extreme weather events in 2012. That's the second largest outlay in history...and represents more than what was spent on either transportation or education.
