You Might Be From North Dakota if...

I figured that this post would be appropriate for the weather that we are having! :D This is kind of long, but well worth the laughs (whether it is laughing at North Dakota or laughing because it is true, or both)! Feel free to add your own (about any state).

If you drive to town during a blizzard just to see if the weather man knows what he's talking about.
If you consider the wind "calm" from 0-15 mph, "kinda breezy" from 15-30 mph, and "kinda windy" for more than 30 mph.

If you're not afraid to walk across the lake in January.
If the forecast is for 60 mph winds, 3 feet of snow, 60 below wind chills, and the highway is full of people from any small town going to any big city, even if it's 120 miles, just to shop, or for the absolutely necessary reason of attending a basketball tournament.
