You might live in MN if.....

If you consider it a sport to gather your food by drilling through l8 inches of ice and sitting there all day hoping that the food will swim by,

If you're proud that your state makes the national news 96 nights each year because International Falls is the coldest spot in the nation

If your local Dairy Queen is closed from November through March.

If someone in a store offers you assistance, and they don't work there.

If you may not have actually eaten it, but you have heard of Lutefisk.

If you have worn shorts and a parka at the same time you might live in MN (and your name may be Caleb

If you have had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number.

If you know how to say Wayzata, Mahtomedi, Edina and Shakopee.

Your idea of a traffic jam is ten cars waiting to pass a tractor on the highway. (been there!)

You measure distance in hours.

You often switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day and back again.

Your whole family wears Viking purple to church on Sunday.

You can drive 65 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard, without flinching.

You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both

There are 7 empty cars running in the parking lot at Mill's Fleet Farm at any given time. (SO TRUE! Who wants to get into a cold car?)

You design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.

Driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow.

You know how to polka.

Down South to you means Iowa.

A brat is something you eat.

What a great email that was sent to me today but it made me miss good ole MN no matter how cold it is! Thanks Blake and Tyler for passing this on!
