Cold is a relative thing

Saw this on a Northern Michigan forum and thought it was funny (and somewhat true). Saw people at Lake Michigan over the weekend with coats, long pants and gloves on and I was in shorts, T shirt and sandals.

Here is our answer to complaints of Michigan weather and the questions of why we live here.

COLD IS A RELATIVE THING.

Floridians turn on the heat.
People in Michigan plant gardens.

People in Michigan drive with the windows down.

New York landlords finally turn up the heat.
People in Michigan have the last cookout before it gets cold.

20 above zero:
People in Miami all die.
Michiganders close the windows.

All of that is totally true and can also be said for those of us in Wisconsin... although I seem to be the only *active* member in Wisconsin, so you'll have to take my word for it! Thanks for sharing!
