The Pacific Northwest

I was cruising a few blogs after lunch and found a funny entry about the Pacific Northwest. This is according to Jeff Foxworthy.

The Pacific Northwest:
  • You feel guilty throwing aluminum cans or paper in the trash.
  • You use the statement "sun break," and know what it means.
  • You know more than 10 ways to order a coffee.
  • You stand on a deserted corner in the rain waiting for a "walk" signal.
  • You consider that if it has no snow or has not recently erupted, then it is not a real mountain.
  • You can taste the difference between Starbucks and Seattle's Best.
  • You consider swimming an indoor sport.
  • You are not fazed by "Today's forecast: showers followed by rain" or "Tomorrow's forecast: rain followed by showers."
  • You have no concept of humidity without precipitation.
  • You can point to at least two volcanoes, even if you cannot see through the cloud cover.
  • You note, "The mountain is out" when it is a pretty day and you can actually see it.
  • You think people who use umbrellas are either wimps or tourists.
  • You buy new sunglasses every year, because you cannot find the old ones after such a long time.
  • You design your kid's Halloween costume to fit under a raincoat.
