Cold Weather Behavior

I thought this was worth posting... for all my Minnesota readers and all the chumps I know across the country.  A special thanks to Darcy for posting it on Facebook!

Cold Weather Behavior:

60 above zero: Floridians turn on the heat. Minnesotans plant gardens.
50 above zero: Californians shiver uncontrollably. People are sunbathing in Duluth .
40 above zero: Import cars won't start. Minnesotans drive with the sunroof open.
32 above zero: Distilled water freezes. The water in Bemidji gets thicker.
20 above zero: New Mexicans don long johns, parkas and wool hats & mittens. Minnesotans throw on a flannel shirt.
15 above zero: New York landlords finally turn on the heat. People in Minnesota have one last cookout before it gets cold.
Zero: People in Miami all die. Minnesotans close the windows.
10 below zero: Californians fly away to Mexico . Minnesotans dig their winter c oats out of storage.
25 below zero: Hollywood disintegrates. Girl Scouts in Minnesota still selling cookies door to door.
40 below zero: Washington , D.C. finally runs out of hot air. People in Minnesota let their dogs sleep indoors.
100 below zero: Santa Claus abandons the North Pole. Minnesotans get upset because the Mini-Van won't start.
460 below zero: ALL atomic motion stops (absolute zero on the Kelvin scale). People in Minnesota can be heard to say, "Cold 'nuff fer ya?"
500 below zero: Hell freezes over. Minnesota public schools open 2 hours late.

50 degrees?? I would be in my Uggs with the warmest sweatshirt I own! And the heat in my house goes on when it goes below 60 degrees too.
But since we are in the 70's today, I am not freezing yet.

LOL....while I'm not NEAR as cold as you are, it's been mighty cold here in the south lately. One night last week had us at 1 degree above zero, with a wind chill of -5. Tomorrow night is supposed to be 18. I moved to the south to get AWAY from this crap!!!

Arizona has never looked better.
