    you dont bother zippin up your coat till it hits 20 degrees

    you wait for it to warm up so you can get some fresh snow(it doesnt snow if its much below 0 degrees)

    -30 and a foot of snow DOES NOT close down the town, in fact you notice no change in the amount of activity

    snowmobiling in -20 degree weather sounds like fun

    in April when it FINALLY hits 45 above you dig out your shorts

    -15 degrees doesnt feel THAT cold if there is no wind

    its so cold you cant plug in your vehicle because the cold shrunk the plug and it refuses to go on

    your truck/car heater will only blow sorta warm air because its SO FREAKING COLD

    sorry guys, it was -35 when i woke up at 5 am, no wind. i darn near frost bit my hands unplugging the truck. at 9 am it was still -30 and the sun was shining, i feels like its about -20 to -15 now. anyone else have any good ones?

    When I lived in Riverton,Wyo. it dropped to -63 degrees. My friend nearly lost his ears and I had frost nip because I walked to work (.5 mile) and he walked to college (a further .5 mile) because it was so cold that it felt fairly warm and the car would not start. Should have taken that for a warning.

    Our garage is pretty damp with both vehicles dragging in snowmelt.

    It's so cold when it spontaneously snows in the garage when you open up the door! very funky to see hehe

    Autumn lasts about 2 weeks, and Winter 5 months.

    snow in April is normal.

    you have to leave water dripping in all the faucets all night.

    its not unusual to see snowmobiles parked like cars in the parking lot of the local diner.

    your halloween costume when you were a kid always had to be able to fit over a huge winter coat..

    You're too far north if you have to head south to find S. purpurea.

    When you graduate at the end of MAY, and it's a sunny 75 out, there's still HUGE mounds of snow at the end of the parking lot...

    Yeah... -60 for a week one year at school.
