you know you live in the maritimes when…

1. Your idea of a traffic jam is ten cars waiting to pass a tractor….on the highway.

2.”Vacation” means going to Moncton for the weekend.

3. You measure distance in hours.

4. You know several people who have hit a deer.

5. You often switch from “Heat” to “A/C” in the same day.

6. You use a down filled comforter in the summer.

7. You can drive 100 km through 13 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching.

8. You see people wearing hunting clothes at social events.

9. You install security lights on both your house and garage and go and leave both unlocked.

10. You think of the major food groups as: Meat, Fish and Tim Hortons.

11. You carry jumper cables in your car and your wife knows how to use them.

12. There are seven empty cars running in the parking lot of the Canadian Tire store at any given time.

13. You design your kid’s Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.

14. Driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow.

15. Your lingerie consists of tube socks and flannel pajamas.

16. You know all 4 seasons: Almost Winter, Winter, Still Winter and Construction.

17. It takes three hours to go to the store for one item, even when you’re in a hurry because you have to stop and talk to everybody in town.

And Finally: You know you live in the Maritimes when…

18. You actually understand these jokes and forward them to all your friends from the Maritimes.

Yes, I know — it’s a forward. Tacky, but it’s all true. Don’t you hate it when those two things collide.

Oh, and the email came from my mum.

Oh, and the stuff that is bold is stuff that I have experienced. Please hold off on your laughter until you leave this site. Spare my feelings just a little.
