You Know You Live In The North When...

I found a funny list in the teacher's break room at the school, so I've decided to re-post it here. Believe me, it's all true.

You Know You Live In The North When...


  1. You instinctively walk like a penguin for ten months of the year.
  2. You think nothing of drilling through 13 feet of ice and sitting there all day hoping that dinner will swim by.
  3. Your suntan stops at a line curving around the middle of your forehead.
  4. You have had lengthy conversations with people who dialed you as a wrong number.
  5. You measure distance in number of flights it takes to get there.
  6. You can drive a snowmobile through four feet of snow in a raging blizzard and not flinch.
  7. You design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a parka.
  8. Driving is better in the winter because the potholes on your dirt road are filled with snow.
  9. Going "down South" means Winnipeg.
  10. Your four seasons are 'almost winter', 'winter', 'still winter', and 'mosquito.'
  11. You find -20C on the warm side.
  12. Your 1st of July picnic was moved indoors because of a blizzard.  

Just another reminder not to complain to us about how cold it is. We are unsympathetic. :-)
