Default You Might Live in Upstate NY if.....

OMG...this had to have been written more for NORTHERN New York Staters...take a peek into my life!



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 Dairy Queen 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 YORKE R 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 install security lights on your house and garage and leave both
unlocked.




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 .




Your neighbor throws a party to celebrate his new shed.




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 forward them to all your
Upstate New York friends and to those who used to live here and left(chickens).

Sounds a lot like WY.

But can you add--The police never ticket locals for fear one of them might tell his mama what he was really up to on Prom Night 15 yrs ago.
