    A few have questioned what it's like here where I live
    I just saw this and it rings true in many instances

    You know you're from Manitoba when...
    1. "Vacation" means going to Brandon for the weekend.
    2. You measure distance in hours.
    3. You often switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day.
    4. You know several people who have hit deer more than once.
    5. You use a down comforter in the summer.
    6. Your grandparents drive at 100 km/h through four meters of snow during a blizzard, without flinching.
    7. You carry jumper cables in your car and your girlfriend knows how to use them.
    8. You design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.
    9. Driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled.
    10. You know all four seasons: Almost winter, winter, still
    winter,
    and
    construction.
    11. You are bundled up in three sweaters, a parka, ski pants, a toque, two pairs of mittens, boots past your knees in 3 feet of snow in a -35(-8000 with the wind-chill) blizzard, your eyelashes are frozen together,
    your nose is running, you can't feel your toes, and you still stop at 7 Eleven for a Slurpee on the way home.
    12. You actually understand these jokes and forward them to all your friends in Manitoba.

    LOL WW it sounds like most of that could apertain to Edmonton as well
    there is not much chance of hitting deer here but I have seen deer moose and coyotes on the main Edmonton - Calgary highway so I guess some one must have hit them at some time. The cold certainly rings a bell
    One day parasites and their ilk will be made illegal, I bet a few Lawyers will be pissed off when the day comes.

    That sounds like Michigan!

    Not so many deer in the way here in the Lower Peninsula, but the rest is an exact match!

    Tuesday morning rush hour traffic here was delayed on the Deefoot (the main 8 lane highway) buy ducklings crossing the road. Memorial had deer, Glenmore had a Cayote, Edgemont Blvd had more deer and I belive there were Moose on Stoney Trail.

    Nothing like the traffic problems in the "big city", eh?!

    I too was thinking it sounded just like Northern Lower Michigan!

    Too funny!

    Hey, Walleye!

    BRRR! Makes me glad I live in Oklahoma!

    We don't have a moose problem here (if I saw one it would scare me half to death!) thank goodness. Although you hear about the occassional cattle truck overturning and traffic being stopped cuz of that. Usually, though, there's some cowboy that was pulling his roping horse to or from where ever. He'll pull over and get those cows rounded up in no time!
    Blessed Be,
    White Wolf
