Default Driving is better in winter because potholes are filled with snow

HERE IS WHAT JEFF FOXWORTHY HAS TO SAY ABOUT NEW ENGLANDERS (so don't shoot the messenger)....

If you know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter and road construction, you live in New England .

If you have more miles on your snow blower than your car, you live in New England .

If you find 10 degrees 'a little chilly', you live in New England .

If driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow, you live in New England .

Forget Rednecks .... If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don't work there, you live in New England .

If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you live in New England.

If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you live in New England.

If Vacation means going anywhere south of New York City for the weekend, you live in New England .

If you measure distance in hours, you live in New England .

If you know several people who have hit a deer more than once, you live in New England .

If you have switched from 'heat' to 'A/C' in the same day and back again, you live in New England .

If you can drive 75 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching, you live in New England .

If you install security lights on your house and garage but leave both unlocked, you live in New England.

If you carry jumpers in your car and your wife knows how to use them, you live in New England .

If you design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit, you live in New England .

If the speed limit on the highway is 55 mph you're going 80 and everybody is passing you, you live in New England .

If there's a Dunkin Donuts on every corner, you live in New England .

If you think everyone else has a funny accent, you live in New England .

If you actually understand these jokes, and forward them to all your New England friends, you live or have lived in New England.

  8. You root for a college team though you've never taken a class there.

  12. You measure distance in minutes.
  13. Your school classes were canceled because of cold.

Glad you liked it. Everything around here looks like a scene from Dr. Zhivago. Right now, another large snowfall is coming down. It's been one storm right after another......for the past several months.


But, spring will be a total joy this year....after an extremely cold winter with ongoing sub zero temps & tons of snow.

I think MA, NH, VT and Maine will still be thawing out in June! With lots of flooding. Check out the chart in this article, showing the amount of total snowfall still on the ground……

And the dreaded ice dams that can tear the roofing off when they weigh a ton and slide down…..
