Winters in the north can be very harsh with snow storms and icy cold temperatures. People who live in these climates have adapted to life in different ways than our southern cousins. During periods of inclement weather our ears are tuned in to local radio stations and our eyes fixed on local TV for reports of storms or to get the all clear to continue with our daily routines.
One winter morning a couple was listening to the local radio station when they heard this announcement, “We are going to have 4 – 6 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the even numbered side of the street today, so the snowplow can get through.” The wife goes out and moves their car.
The next day at breakfast, the couple heard another announcement on the radio, “We are going to have 6 – 8 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the odd numbered side of the street today, so the snowplow can get through.” The wife goes out and moves their car to the other side of the street.
On the third morning the radio announces, “We are going to have 8 – 10 inches of snow today. You must park . . .” Then suddenly the electricity went off. The wife looked at her husband and sadly said, “Now I won’t know where to park the car!”
With love and understanding in his voice, the young husband looked at his wife and said, “Why don’t you just leave the car in the garage today?” Be sure to check out this and more at NewsLinQ.
