You know you live in Iowa when...

According to Jeff Foxworthy, you know you live in Iowa when...
  • your local Dairy Queen is closed from Sept through May.  Not true in our neighboring towns because they also act as restaraunt, not just an ice-cream place.
  • If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don't even work there. 
  • If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong
  • If you measure distance in squares of farm land.  Not the case up where we live.  It's rolling hills, trees and an abundance of random fence lines and tiny fields - I would know since I deal with their farm maps daily.
  • If you know several people who have hit a cow or deer numerous times
  • If you can drive 70 mph through 2 feet of snow during a
    raging blizzard without flinching.  Seriously.
  • If you install security lights on your house and garage, but
    leave both unlocked
  • If you design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a ,snowsuit
  • If driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow - definitely true on our driveway!!!
  • If you know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter and road construction.  Sometimes it seems like this is true but we really do have beautiful seasons here and would complain regardless.
  • If you find 10 degrees 'a little chilly'.  Definitely true right now.  It was -9 when I drove to work this morning.
