Upstate NY? Need a laugh?

Just got an email from my friend in NYC.

Things that you understand if you live in upstate New York:

1. Your idea of a traffic jam is 10 cars waiting to pass a tractor on the highway.
2. You measure distance in hours.
3. You know several people who have hit deer more than once.
4. You often switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day.
5. You stay in your house most of the summer because you aren't used to the heat.
6. You drive at 55 mph through 10 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching.
7. You see people wearing hunting clothes at social events.
8. You install security lights on your house and garage but leave both unlocked.
9. One of your neighbors constantly has bonfires.
10. You carry jumper cables in your car and your girlfriend knows how to use them.
11. There are 7 empty cars running in the parking lot at the supermarket at any given time.
12. Your idea of a huge party is one with lots of cheap beer and some people you go to school with.
13. Driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled in with snow.
14. You know 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, cold, construction.
15. It takes you 2 hours to go to the store for one item even when you're in a rush because you have to stop and talk to everyone in town.
16. At least 6 people that you see a day have beards and stains on the front of their shirt.
17. Cows are just part of the scenery.
18. At least fives times in your normal travel day you will pass or be passed by a beat-up, old ass car that has had an attempted pimping out, such as a brand new oversized spoiler on a rust covered trunk, spinning hubcaps, or everyone's favorite, the performance exhaust on a car running on barely three cylinders.
19. You know that the phrase, "Goin up ta," applies to going north, south, east, or west, up or down in elevation, and pretty much any other way you can travel.
20. The smell of freshly spread cow manure doesn't bother you.
21. Its perfectly normal for your life's aspirations to be working for the county.
22. Getting "dressed up" means tucking your shirt into your jeans and putting on clean work boots.
23. Halloween costumes are always designed around a snowsuit and winter boots.
24. You know damn well that the Verizon guy didn't walk through your town going, "Can you hear me now?" because reception is, at best, limited.
25. You know what 4-H is.
26. You ever went to a party that was held about 20 miles down a deserted dirt road.
27. You said the 'F' word and your parents knew within an hour.
28. You ever went or thought about going cow-tipping.
29. It was cool to date someone from a neighboring town.
30. You had a senior skip day.
31. You can't help but date a friend's ex.
32. Your car is always filthy from the dirt roads.
33. The town next to you is considered "trashy" or "snotty" when it is just like your town.
34. Getting paid minimum wage is considered a raise.
35. You refer to anyone with a house newer than 1980 as the "rich people."
36. The people in the big city dress funny then you pick up on the cool new trend two years later.
37. You bragged to your friends because you got pipes on your truck for your birthday.
38. On Fridays, anyone you want to find can be found at Main Street or the Dairy Queen.
39. Weekend excitement involves a trip to RiteAid.
40. Even the ugly people enter beauty contests.
41. You decide to walk for exercise and 5 people pull over and ask you if you need a ride.
42. Your teachers call you by your older sibling's name.
43. You leave your jacket on the back of the chair in the cafe, and when you go back the next day, it's still there, on the same chair.
44. You don't signal turns because everyone knows where you're going, anyway.
45. You call a wrong number and they supply you with the correct one.
46. You have to name six surrounding towns to explain to people where you're from.
47. Driving to the party on a four wheeler is quite normal.
48. The town population increases by one-third when the universities go on break.
49. You laugh your head off reading this because you know it's true and then forward it to everyone in your address book, which is actually half your town.

Meh. Some of them were true. Some of my buds from up in the Adirondack areas probably got more of them. I was out by Rochester.

I live in very Northern NY (Lisbon, NY), right across from the Canadian border and this cracked me up!

My version would be:
1. Your idea of a traffic jam is 5 cars waiting to pass an Amish Buggy on the highway.
2. You measure distance in hours and give directions using only landmarks (like take a right at the big hill or the ol' barn).
3. You know several people who have hit deer more than once within a few miles of their own house.

For those from Rochester. This is hilariously accurate...except there should be more bitching about 104.

I used to live in East Rochester as a kid so completely different than the big city of Rochester Parents were volunteer ambulance drivers and dad was pastor of the Lutheran Church ... ahhh small town USA. Sadly, though, I am glad I moved out West as I am not particular to bullet rationing :0
