I used to love winter. I played hockey, snowmobiled, ice fished, built snow forts, and the list goes on and on.
Now I fully understand when the older folks used to say "The older you get, the less you like winter"
It's true. I try to embrace it, but it's just a pain more then anything. Ugh..rant over.
Here is some winter humor that only we understand by living in a cold weather climate.
A few of my favorites from the list:
The neighbor who is up snow blowing at the butt crack of dawn: There is always that one guy in the neighborhood who is awake and fires up the snow blower before the sun comes up.
Ice cream is in season even in the winter!
Ice fishing and a cold beer is heaven even though it is freezing out!
Mild is 32 degrees. If we hit forty it's downright tropical!
Check out the rest of the list about how only people from the midwest understand winter.
