Cold enuf for ya?

We're heading into a period of rather chilly weather here in Minnesota. This morning when I left the house it was 19 below zero. And that's without the windchill.

So, to try and maintain my sense of humor about the whole thing, I offer the following cold weather behavior:

60 above zero: Floridians turn on the heat. Minnesotans plant gardens.

50 above zero: Californians shiver uncontrollably. People are sunbathing in Duluth .

40 above zero: Import cars won't start. Minnesotans drive with the sunroof open.

32 above zero: Distilled water freezes. The water in Bemidji gets thicker.

20 above zero: New Mexicans don long johns, parkas and wool hats & mittens. Minnesotans throw on a flannel shirt.

15 above zero: New York landlords finally turn on the heat. People in Minnesota have one last cookout before it gets cold.

Zero: People in Miami all die. Minnesotans close the windows.

10 below zero: Californians fly away to Mexico. Minnesotans dig their winter coats out of storage.

25 below zero: Hollywood disintegrates. Girl Scouts in Minnesota still selling cookies door to door.

40 below zero: Washington, D.C. finally runs out of hot air. People in Minnesota let their dogs sleep indoors.

100 below zero: Santa Claus abandons the North Pole. Minnesotans get upset because the Mini-Van won't start.

460 below zero: ALL atomic motion stops. People in Minnesota can be heard to say, "Cold 'nuff fer ya?"

500 below zero: Hell freezes over. Minnesota public schools open 2 hours late.

Today's goal: Finish my Marlene entry (the stupid thing's going in the contest no matter how bad it is.)
Yesterday's achievement: Made it home in less than 2 hours.
What I'm grateful for: Have I mentioned my new tires in the last couple weeks? Between the 2 inches of that awful white stuff that falls every other day and the back ice, they've been a lifesaver.
