...you live in Nova Scotia.

Sent to me in an email.(not to be confused with You Might Be a Redneck)

If your local Motels are closed from September through May, you live in Nova Scotia.

If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don't work there, you live in Nova Scotia.

If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you live in Nova Scotia.

If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you live in Nova Scotia.

You know you're a Nova Scotian when: "Vacation" means going any where beyond Digby for the weekend.

If you measure distance in hours, you live in Nova Scotia. . . well, of course!

If you know several people who have hit a deer more than once, you live in Nova Scotia

If you have switched from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day and back again, you live in Nova Scotia

If you can drive 100 km/h through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching, you live in Nova Scotia

If you install security lights on your house and garage, but leave them both unlocked, you live in Nova Scotia

If you carry jumpers in your car and your wife/daughter knows how to use them, you live in Nova Scotia

If you design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit, you live in Nova Scotia

If the speed limit on the highway is 100 km/h and you're going 110 km/h and everybody is passing you, you live in Nova Scotia

The driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow... you live in Nova Scotia

If you know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter and road construction, you live in Nova Scotia

If you have more miles on your snow blower than your car, you live in Nova Scotia

If you find 0 degrees "a little chilly.", you live in Nova Scotia

If you actually understand these jokes....You are true a Nova Scotia citizen!

Oh my god! This is so funny! I have a thing like this on my blog, about living in Vancouver (where i'm from) How do I add your blog to my site, so others can see it? I love it!

I have travelled the Great NS. Let me tell you I was on the lighthouse tour. I could have taken my crew on the main highway to get to the other side of the island - but no, they wanted the scenic route. So the lighthouse tour we took. 5 hours in, i'm getting tired and ansy about this drive. I stop every town we hit all they say is "you better hurry, darks a comin'" The range in time for when we would reach our destination ran from 10 minutes to days at every stop. But, yes eventually we made it to the town we needed to be in. However, the hotels were closed. LOL. Oh yes.

I love NS. I believe it to be one of the most beautiful places out there. Gorgeous rich of history....but man - the hotel closures SUCK!

It was 10C here in NOVA SCOTIA today, that is 50F for our American friends, Not too bad for winter. I have never heard of halloween snowsuits here - that's Winnipeg. Weather is nice here then. What BS.

I bought a snowblower and never get to use it as our winters are so warm. People routinely golf here in the Annapolis Valley in January.

We get a winter storm every now and then, and the snow melts within a few days. People know how to drive in bad weather.

People here do not need air conditioners, so what is this crap about AC and heat being on the same day. Try Winnipeg for that.

They just paved the road in front of my house. So much for potholes. And my car insurance is reasonable. Food is cheap and fresh, crime is low. People are friendly.

Yes, our tourism industry is immature but who cares? I hate rude ignorant tourists.

This is a great place to live, and is nothing like BC (snow, windstorms, fires) or Ontario with its ignorant people and smog.

Make up some lies about Newfoundland, or Arkansas....

Drummond? What the hell are you on about?

Gary Drummond said...

OK. That was harsh. How about this:

You know you are in Nova Scotia when...

... you try to pass someone in a passing lane and they speed up. After the passing lane ends, they slow down.

....people allow their land to be clearcut and then wonder why tourists don't come.

...the scallops are as big as hockey pucks.

...you are paying a fortune for a carton of milk.

...all the kids graduating from university are bragging about when they are leaving for Alberta.

See? Now your starting to get into the spirit of it, Gary.

Good on ya!
