    The mosquitoes have landing lights
    You have more miles on your snow-blower than your car
    You have 10 favorite recipes for venison
    True-value hardware on any Saturday is busier than the toy stores at Christmas
    You live in a house that has no front steps, yet the door is one yard above the ground
    You've taken your kids trick-or-treating in a blizzard
    Driving is better in the winter because the potholes get filled with snow
    You think everyone from the city has an accent

    The most effective mosquito repellent is a shotgun
    Your snow-blower gets stuck on the roof
    You think the start of deer hunting season is a national holiday
    You head south to go to your cottage
    You frequently clean grease off your barbecue so the bears won't prowl on your deck
    You know which leaves make good toilet paper
    The mayor greets you on the street by your first name
    There is only one shopping plaza in town
    The major parish fundraiser isn't bingo - its sausage making
    You find -20f a little chilly
    The trunk of your car doubles as a deep freezer
    You attended a formal event in your best clothes, your finest jewelry and your snowmobile boots
    You can play road hockey on skates
    Shoveling the driveway constitutes a great upper body workout
    You know the 4 seasons: winter, still winter, almost winter, and construction.

    You left out....

    Your idea of a traffic jam is the car in front of you at a stop light.

    I miss the traffic in Maine.
