"You know you live in New England when..."

Along the lines of the classic "You Know You're From Maine When..." comes the equally true and even funnier meme, "You Know You're From New England When..." passed along to me by JAM. Enjoy!!

  • Your local Dairy Queen is closed from September through May.
  • Someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don't work there.
  • You've worn shorts and a parka at the same time.
  • You've had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number.
  • When "vacation" means going anywhere south of New York City for the weekend.
  • You measure distance in hours.
  • You know several people who have hit a deer more than once.
  • You have switched from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day and back again.
  • You can drive 75 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching.
  • You install security lights on your house and garage, but leave both unlocked.
  • You carry jumpers in your car and your wife knows how to use them.
  • You design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.
  • The speed limit on the highway is 55 mph -- you're going 80 and everybody is passing you!
  • Driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow.
  • You have more miles on your snow blower than your car.
  • You find 10 degrees "a little chilly."
  • You know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter and road construction.
  • You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from New England!
