    Jeff foxworthy on upstate ny.......

    Having been born and raised in Northern NY, 5 miles from the Canadian border, I can SO relate to these. Especially the one about wearing snowsuits under your Halloween costumes. We were all the fattest princesses you ever saw.


    "You might live in upstate New York if..."

    "If you consider it a sport to gather your food by drilling through 36 inches of ice and sitting there all day hoping that the food will swim by, you might live in Upstate New York."
    ...
    "If you're proud that your region makes the national news 96 nights a year because Saranac Lake is the coldest spot in the nation, and Syracuse gets more snow than any other major city in the US, you might live in Upstate NY."

    "If your local ice cream stand is closed from October through May, you might live in Upstate New York."

    "If you get 131 inches of snow in a week and you comment that 'winter's finally here', you might live near Oswego in Upstate New York."

    "If you instinctively walk like a penguin for six months out of the year, you might live, bundled up, in Upstate New York."

    "If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance, and they don't work there, you might live in Upstate NY."

    "If your dad's suntan stops at a line curving around the middle of his forehead, you might live in Upstate New York."

    "If you have worn shorts and a parka on the same day, you might live in Upstate New York."

    "If you have had a lengthy phone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you might live in Upstate New York."

    "You know you are a true upstate New Yorker when..."

    "Vacation" means going South past Syracuse for the weekend.

    You measure distance in hours.

    You know several people who have hit a deer more than once.

    You often switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day and back again.

    You can drive 65 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard, without flinching.

    You carry jumper cables in your car and your girlfriend/wife knows how to use them.

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

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

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

    You can identify a southern or eastern accent.

    Down South to you means Corning.

    You go out for a fish fry every Friday.

    Your 4th of July picnic was moved indoors due to frost.

    You have more miles on your snow blower than your car.

    You find 10 degrees "a little chilly." and 55 is shorts weather.

    You actually understand these jokes, and you send them to all your Upstate New York friends and to those who used to live here and left. (Chickens).

    Made me laugh. Thanks for sharing. Last week the high one day was 36 with snow flurries, next day it was 80 degrees and sunny. I can relate a little bit.

    Jeff Foxworthy is a hoot. Friday night we had hail at my house.

    Personally I think some of our weird weather is due to the HAARP weather weapon up in Alaska. Originally HAARP had great potential for ELF (Extreme Low Frequency) comms with our Trident Submarines. But that was 20+years ago.

    Western NY can be tough driving but this '13 Toyota sedan solved my problems:

    As a Michigander I can relate to many of them.

    Nope. Shorts weather starts at about 35 - 40.

    I remember being at Plattsburgh AFB in mid-winter when we had a January thaw (high for the day was 32) and everyone was walking around in t-shirts enjoying the warm weather.

    That's true Alexr. I'm from Massena and we broke out the shorts when the temperature reached 32.
