Jeff Foxworthy on Ontario:

If you consider it a sport to gather your food by drilling through 36 inches of ice and sitting there all day hoping that the food will swim by, you live in Ontario.

If your local Dairy Queen is closed from September through May, you live in Ontario.
If you instinctively walk like a penguin for six months out of the year,you live in Ontario.

If your dad's suntan stops at a line curving around the middle of his forehead, you live in Ontario.

If you have worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you live in Ontario.

If you have had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you live in Ontario.

YOU KNOW YOU ARE A TRUE ONTARIAN:

1. "Vacation" means going South past Toronto for the weekend.
2. You measure distance in hours.
3. You know several people who have hit a deer more than once.
4. You often switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day and then back again.
5. You can drive 110 kph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard, without flinching.
6. You design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.
7. Driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow.
8. You know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter and road construction.
9. Your idea of creative landscaping is a statue of a deer next to your blue spruce.
10. Down South to you means Toronto ...
11. Your 1st of July picnic was moved indoors due to frost
12. You have more miles on your snow blower than your car.
13. You find 0 degrees "a little chilly."
14. You actually understand these jokes, and you forward them to all your Ontario friends

These are the ones that apply to Newfoundland (when you replace deer with moose).
As for the switching from A?C to heat in one day. It describes the last week or so wether wise for us:eek: 2 days ago it was 17 degrees, yesterday started warm and ended up down to 2 degrees.

Definitley fits Alberta too lol.
Well most of it.
I had to laugh at the one about doing 110 through 2 feet of snow, cause thats how it is where I live. I drive a car and sometimes I HAVE to go that fast to get through the drifts on the highway.
You know what gets me though?
Is we have snow every single year,but yet 1st snowfall it's like everyone forgot that snow is slippery and wet and half the towns in the ditch,or sliding through stop signs or hitting curbs!! Uhhhh gee what did you think this year it was gonna be a " dry snow"? Funny creatures humans are.
