You know you live in Nebraska...


(courtesy of my friend Heather, courtesy of Jeff Foxworthy)

If your local Dairy Queen is closed from September through May.

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

If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time.

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

If "Vacation" means going anywhere south of GRAND ISLAND for the weekend.

If you measure distance in squares of farm land.

If you know several people who have hit a cow more than once. (my brother!)

If you have gone from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day and back again.

If you can drive 75 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching.

If you install security lights on your house and garage, but leave both unlocked.

If you carry jumpers in your car and your wife knows how to use them.

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

If the I-80 speed limit is 75 mph -- you're going 90 and everybody is passing you.

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

If you know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter and road construction.

If you have more hours on your snow blower than miles on your car.

If you find 10 degrees "a little chilly."

If you listen/attend/watch a Husker football game even if you're not a football fan!

(I added that last one myself - it's so easy to get caught up in Husker-mania!)
Enjoy the list and pass it on! :)

Um, I have to be forthright and say with certainty that y'all don't know nothin' about snow. But the Husker one is true. ;)
