You Know You're a Maritimer When . . .

Swimming in the very chilly Bay of Fundy at high tide!

I found this list on Facebook...I thought it was hilarious because I just kept nodding and laughing in agreement!

Description: You don't have to be from the maritimes per say, join this group if . . .

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 switchfrom "Heat" to "A/C" in the same day.

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

7. Your Grandparents drive 100 kmthrough 13 feet of snow during 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 goand 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 Tirestore at any given time.

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

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

15. Your lingerie consists of tube socks and flannel pajamas. 16. You knowall 4 seasons: Almost Winter, Winter, Still Winter andConstruction.

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 inthe Maritimes when...

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

Hah! I love the maritimes and truly feel everyone else is missing out. I guess it is a bit of a snobbery or just a heavy dose of maritime pride, but I do feel we are nicer here, that the sleepier pace is better for our kids and the beaches have no comparisons! Aren't I annoyingly proud?!?
