My friend Cassie posted something on Facebook today that had me laughing till I cried.

She posted some Jeff Foxworthy-isms about "you may live in Minnesota".  "If you design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit, you may live in Minnesota".  "If you have more miles on your snow blower than your car, you may live in Minnesota".  You get the idea.  Good stuff, right?  My inquisitive mind took it a step further, plus the fact that Monday is a boring TV night!  I found a great site, www.minnesota-visitor.com.  It's packed with fun info about our State.  One section is devoted to "you know it's winter in Minnesota if".  Here are a couple:  you know it's winter in Minnesota if bundled up as they are, kids can fall down three flights of stairs and not get hurt.  Love it!  You know it's winter in Minnesota because there are no mosquitoes.  You carelessly leave meat in your car and it will freeze and stay fresh.  I personally left a banana in my car and could have pounded a nail with it the next day.  So what is the dead give-away for me proving that I live in Minnesota? 

If you dress up your snowman in a fundraiser T-shirt, you live in Minnesota!
