You're from Nova Scotia

A fellow Nova Scotian forwarded this viral email. You know you are from Nova Scotia if:

- someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don't work there

- you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time

- you've had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number

- a vacation means going anywhere south of Yarmouth for the weekend

- you measure distance in hours

- you know several people who have hit a deer more than once

- you have switched from heat to A/C in the same day and back again

- you can drive 75 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching

- you install security lights on your house and garage, but leave both unlocked

- you carry jumpers in your car and your wife knows how to use them

- you design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit

- driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow

- you know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter & road construction,

- you have more miles on your snow blower than your car

- you find 10ºF only a little chilly

- you actually understand these jokes, and forward them to all your Nova Scotian friends
