We Love Winter!

60 above zero: Floridians turn on the heat. North Dakotans plant gardens.

50 above zero: Californians shiver uncontrollably. People are sunbathing in Duluth.

40 above zero: Import cars won’t start. North Dakotans drive with the sunroof open.

32 above zero: Distilled water freezes. The water in Bemidji gets thicker.

20 above zero: New Mexicans don long johns, parkas and wool hats & mittens. North Dakotans throw on a flannel shirt.

15 above zero: New York landlords finally turn on the heat. People in North Dakota have one last cookout before it gets cold.

Zero: People in Miami fly south. North Dakotans close the windows.

10 below zero: Californians head to Mexico. North Dakotans dig their winter coats out of storage..

25 below zero: Hollywood disintegrates. Girl Scouts in North Dakota still selling cookies door to door.

40 below zero: Washington, D.C. runs out of hot air. People in North Dakota let their dogs sleep indoors.

100 below zero: Santa Claus abandons the North Pole. North Dakotans get upset because the mini-van won’t start.

460 below zero: ALL atomic motion stops (absolute zero on the Kelvin scale). People in North Dakota can be heard to say, “Cold ’nuff fer ya?”

500 below zero: Everything freezes over. North Dakota public schools open 2 hours late.

This winter is almost over; keep hanging on! =D

Haha Lulu--this one made me laugh. I was cracking up the entire time. Pretty true and really gets you thankful that winter IS almost over! :) Thank you for brightening my day--maybe I'll start waiting a little more patiently for spring.

Lulu said...

Yeah--I got this off of another blog, with her permission.....I thought it was so funny! =D thanks..I'm glad I brightened up your day! And Miss Jordan--you did a great job with Romans 1 & 2 at the Public Speaking Night! The entire time I had to try to keep my mouth from dropping open. Sweet work dear! Hugs to both of you!

That cracks me up... hilariously true! I have been known on several occasions to go to town without a coat on when it is -20 actual temp...and it doesn't seem that cold.Happened to stumble across this link & just had to comment.

Gave me a good laugh-parts of it are truer than I'd like to admit! :) I'm afraid I can't agree with the title of your post though(I DON'T love winter)!

If you're wondering why I haven't updated in a week-well-Google won't let me sign in. So...just letting you know! Sorry about that..I'll try to sign in again soon!

That's okay Lulu(I admit I was wondering a little)--I understand! Hope this problem with Google gets solved soon!
Have a good day! Here in Iowa the snow is finally nearly all melted! (Hallejuah) But the weather is windy and chilly. Hopefully warmer weather will get here by my birthday at the end of the month. :)
