You Know You Are a True Upstate New Yorker When…
The last time Jeff Foxworthy performed in Upstate New York, a friend of mine jotted a few memorable Upstate inspired jokes down. With this being Monday, I thought you could use a smile or two courtesy of the great Jeff Foxworthy. Funny but so true.
YOU KNOW YOU ARE A TRUE UPSTATE NEW YORKER WHEN:
‘Vacation’ means going south past Syracuse for the weekend.
You measure distance in hours
You know several people who have hit a deer – more than once.
You often switch from ‘heat’ to ‘A/C’ in the same day and back again.
You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both unlocked.
You carry jumper cables in your car and your girlfriend/wife knows how to use them.
You design your kid’s Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.
Driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow.
You know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter, and road construction.
Down South to you means Corning
Your neighbor throws a party to celebrate his new shed.
You go out for a fish fry every Friday.
Your 4th of July picnic was moved indoors due to frost.
You have more miles on your snow blower than your car.
You find 10 degrees ‘a little chilly.’ And 55 is shorts weather.
Love it or hate it, it’s always fun to talk (and laugh) about living in Upstate New York! Now have a good week and watch that pothole.
