To supplement my previous Ohio post, a Facebook friend posted the following and it was too funny to not share:
Here is what Jeff Foxworthy has to say about Ohio..
~If your local Dairy Queen is closed from September through May, you may live in Ohio.
~If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don’t even work there, you may live in Ohio.
~If you’ve worn shorts and a jacket at the same time, you may live in Ohio. (yay! Its 50 degrees! Time for shorts!)
~If you’ve had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you may live in Ohio. (I have never done this)
~If “vacation” means going anywhere south of Dayton for the weekend, you may live in Ohio. (yup)
~If you measure distance in hours, you may live in Ohio. (Cincinnati is about 4 hours from my parents house)
~If you know several people who have hit a deer more than once, you may live in Ohio.(no)
~If you have switched from ‘heat’ to ‘A/C’ in the same day and back again, you may live in Ohio.(oh yes)
~If you can drive 75 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching, you may live in Ohio. (could have before, probably not anymore)
~If you install security lights on your house and garage, but leave both doors unlocked, you may live in Ohio. (uh….)
~If you carry jumpers in your car and your wife knows how to use them, you may live in Ohio.(well, I AM the wife, and I know how to use them, but only since I moved to SC…. thanks Megan!)
~If you design your kid’s Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit, you may live in Ohio. (I was one of those kids)
~If the speed limit on the highway is 55 mph -you’re going 80 and everybody is passing you, you may live in Ohio. (yup)
~If driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow, you may live in Ohio.
~If you know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter and road construction, you may live in Ohio. (and why I moved to SC!)
~If you have more miles on your snow blower than your car, you may live in Ohio.
~If you find 10 degrees “a little chilly”, you may live in Ohio. (now I consider 60 degrees chilly – oh how the blood thins)

I have family in Cleveland. I think you hit the nail perfectly on the head.

You should know that this one:
“If you have switched from ‘heat’ to ‘A/C’ in the same day and back again, you may live in Ohio.”
…also very accurately describes Florida this time of year. 🙂 The temp differences would make you want to hit me in the mouth because I am sure the temperature I need for heat, any northerner would find enjoyable, but still….I have done this for the past 2 weeks!!
The one about the Halloween costume over the snow suit cracks me up!!

These are really funny. I’ve been to Ohio once. My sister went to school there for a year. Hi from ICLW! (#88). I love that you run! I just added your link to my blog. I hope you check me out! Thanks!
