Thought for the Week

You might be from the Northwest if…  (cont’d)

    1. You notice ‘the mountain is out’ when it is a pretty day and you can actually see it.
    2.  Put on your shorts when the temperature gets above 50, but still wear your hiking boots and parka.
    3. Switch to your sandals when it gets about 60, but keep the socks on.
    4. Have actually used your mountain bike on a mountain.
    5. Think people who use umbrellas are either wimps or tourists.
    6. Buy new sunglasses every year, because you can’t find the old ones after such a long time.
    7. You measure distance in hours.
    8. You often switch from ‘heat’ to ‘a/c’ in the same day.
    9. You use a down comforter in the summer.
    10. You carry jumper cables in your car and your wife knows how to use them.
    11. You design your kid’s Halloween costume to fit under a raincoat.
  • You know all the important seasons: Almost Winter, Winter, Still Raining (Spring), Road Construction (Summer) Deer & Elk season (Fall).
  • You understand these jokes and send them to all your friends in the northwest or those who used to live here.

Author unknown – but obviously from the northwest!
