The Northwest way….

June 22, 2006
A friend just sent us that and I found it really funny…and so true. After almost 5 years in teh Northwest I can testify that this is totally true…
If you live in the Northwest…

"You know more than 10 ways to order coffee". 

"You feel overdressed wearing a suit to a nice restaurant".

"You stand on a deserted corner in the rain waiting for the "Walk" signal". 

"You consider that if it has no snow or has not recently erupted, it is not a real mountain".

"You know the difference between Chinook, Coho and Sockeye salmon". 

"You consider swimming an indoor sport".

"You buy new sunglasses every year, because you can’t find the old ones after such a long time" (this is exactly what Nathalie does!!!). 

"You measure distance in hours".

"You often switch from "Heat" to "A/C" in the same day". 

"You carry jumper cables in your car and your wife knows how to  use them".  Also Nathalie knows how to call AAA 😉 !!!!

"You understand what the cashier means by "Plastic or Paper?"". 

"You feel guilty throwing aluminum cans or paper in the trash as opposed to the recycle bin".

"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)".
