things you should have told me about Minnesota

To all of you who oh-so-helpfully pointed out that Minnesota was cold, here's what you should have warned me about:
  • The thunderstorms are long, frequent, and heavy on the lightning. 
  • If you ride your bike at night, you'll get hit in the face with a wall of mosquitoes.
  • Basements? Terrifying.
  • Minnesotans apparently did not learn the art of merging in drivers' ed.
  • Your local hardware store chain (Menard's) and your iPhone will not get along. (context: this conversation was about buying a new fan) 


  1. hahah!! love this! At least your iPhone works in Minnesota.. I didn't know they'd moved into the 21st century yet ;)

  2. HA. I think you need to submit this to

  3. Ummm, that is the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen... seriously, so funny!!! Seriously, I'm still laughing about this. I'm pinning it to my things that make laugh board right now to look at one day when I'm in a foul mood :)

  4. oh my gosh that's hilarious! And although I love storms I'm sure I would get a little anxious/nervous at some of them.

  5. This is so awesome.

    (I hate T-storms though. Yuck yuck yuck.)

  6. Ditto to this whole post! I am also quite disappointed with the lack of Chickfila in this state!
