It's fun to hear versions from other states.
In Minnesota our seasons are almost winter, winter, still winter and road construction.
We don't use our turning signals because it gives away our next move.
Snow tires come standard on our cars.
People from other states love to hear us say words with "o"'s in them.
We know what uff-dah means and how to use it properly.
Our local DQ is closed from December thru February.
We laugh out loud every time we read a news report about a blizzard shutting down the entire east coast.
Our towns have an equal number of bars and churches.
We measure distance in hours
Driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow
We never meet any celebrities except The "BODY"
