Cold Is A Relative Thing....

You don't want to hear how my day went.  And I don't want to complain to my friends.  So instead, I thought I'd share something that turned up in my email inbox.  I don't know who wrote it, but it wasn't me. That counts as a disclaimer, right?  No plagiarism here.  Anyway - Enjoy!

Cold is a relative thing ya know....

At 65 degrees, Arizonans turn on the heat. People in Minnesota plant gardens. 
At 60, Californians shiver uncontrollably. People in Minnesota sunbathe. 
At 50, Italian & English cars won't start. People in Minnesota drive with the windows down.. 
At 40, Georgians don coats, thermal underwear, gloves, wool hats. People in Minnesota throw on a flannel shirt. 
At 35, New York landlords finally turn up the heat. People in Minnesota have the last cookout before it gets cold. 
At 20, People in Miami all die. Minnesotans close their windows. 
At 0, Californians fly away to Mexico. People in Minnesota get out their winter coats. 
At 10 below zero, Hollywood disintegrates. The Girl Scouts in Minnesota are selling cookies door to door. 
At 20 below, Washington DC runs out of hot air. (Ya think? Nah.). People in Minnesota let their dogs sleep indoors. 
At 30 below, Santa Claus abandons the North Pole. Minnesotans get upset because they can't start the snowmobile. 
At 40 below, ALL atomic motion stops. People in Minnesota start saying..."Cold enough for ya, eh?" 
At 50 below, hell freezes over. Minnesota public schools will open 2 hours late.


  1. ROFLMAO. Made my night. Going to have to pass this along to a person I know. Take care.

  2. I can remember going door to door selling girl scout cookies and it was so cold, the ink in our pen literally froze. Ah, the good ole days, LOL ~

  3. Interesting! I am with the Georgians, donning coats and gloves at 40º. Well, I would be at 50º
    Have a good Thanksgiving Holiday.

  4. Ya, sure! So true! I lived in Minnesota a lot of my childhood, and International Falls for 3 years - horrid place. But I relate with everything in this piece, and have to say I don't really miss it!

  5. My cousin lives in Minnesota...I think she's crazy! And I'm sending this to her. :)

  6. And I was just grousing because it's -7 this morning and since it snowed last night I'm going to have to shovel. Showing off my California roots.

  7. This is great post. We Nebraskans are pretty hardy, wait, used to be pretty hardy when we were both younger. Joe just freezes since heart surgery but I have no excuse, except, OLD. Have a great Thanksgiving. We did on Sunday.
