MNLife You Know You Are In Minnesota When..

MNLife You Know You Are In Minnesota When..

Every grocery store has mounds of salt in front of it

Every house out here has a water softener - which needs lots of salt to run

Farm Fleet display a hunting crows nest

What's it for? So you can shoot the deer that are poking around you corn fields. We don't need these in Seattle

You See Half Rusted Cars

I thought Boston used a lot of salt. Some pickups here are half rust. Hard to find any sub-$4000 used cars without any rust on them.

Your house has a laundry chute

The Laundry Chute

When I was young, I was fascinated with laundry chutes. I don’t know what it was about them, but whenever I would go to a friend’s house for the first time, I would ask if they had a clothes chute. I was quite the loser.......

Every house has a basement with egress windows

Hardware Stores Have Huge Snowblower Lineup in July

Every Mile You See A Buick Rendevous

OK, Ford escape is far more common here, but you don't see ANY of these in Seattle. Every 20 min drive in Rochester I drive by at least 6 of  these things. Why? This was the not-so-ugly sister to the Pontiac Aztek, it was a cut-down crossover based on a minivan with AWD. It's a Buick (American made), it's cushy and it has 3 rows, other than that who knows? Now they have the Enclave, and the new Taurus/Freestyle/-based Ford Explorer is basically the same idea only less funny looking. In Seattle you'll see 5 Subarus in a row in most parking lots.
