You know you are from Michigan when....

It's been rainning ALL DAY!
Unseasonably warm!
laughing-check my ego self out>>>>>>>
The snow has all melted and now we have flooding.
Temps will be dropping and the rain turns back to snow.

You know you are from Michigan when:

* You own only three spices - salt, pepper and ketchup
* You design your Halloween costumes to fit over a snowsuit
* You have more miles on your snow blower than your car
* You have 10 favorite recipes for venison
* Home Depot on any Saturday is busier than the toy stores at Christmas
* You've taken your kids trick-or-treating in a blizzard
* Driving is better in the winter because the potholes get filled with snow
* You think everyone from the city has an accent
* You think sexy lingerie is tube socks and a flannel nightie with only 8 buttons
* You owe more money on your snowmobile than your car
* The local paper covers national and international headlines on l/4 page, but requires 6 pages for sports
* Your snow blower gets stuck on the roof
* You think the start of deer hunting season is a national holiday
* Summer takes place the second week of July (and it still rains!!)
* You know which leaves make good toilet paper
* You find -20F a little chilly
* The trunk of your car doubles as a deep freezer
* You attended a formal event in your best clothes, your finest jewelry and your snowmobile boots
* Shoveling the driveway constitutes a great upper body workout
* You know the 4 seasons: Winter, Still Winter, Almost Winter, and Construction.
* The municipality buys a zamboni before a bus
* You drink "Vernors" and play "Euchre"
* You actually 'get' these jokes, and forward them to all your Michigan friends
