Title: It's about time...
Post by: TechPro on March 13, 2012, 11:56:38 AM
... that the snow melted.  So what do I want?  A snowball fight.

Spring is here, and that's alright with me.  Is that alright with you? 'Cause I'm gonna enjoy it either way.

We just recovered from a record dought down here. It dried up lakes and unearthed all SORTS of fun artifacts like indian burial grounds, slave burial grounds, railroad tracks, old 19th century tools, stone buildings, etc. But lake levels are back to normal. It's been raining non-stop since January, and we've needed that so bad! There were endless fires last year.

Ditto that, we had such an unusually mild winter this year...but at the same time, it is nice to see spring coming nonetheless, as Techpro said.

Well the snow is completely gone here, even piles where the snowplows piled it up and it's mostly been raining.

I'm in Idaho which gets more of this than Utah.

I think I saw that in the paper. I think he says he hates spring, something of the sort

@ Vanguard: the strip's been edited. It's the latest fad in regards to Garfield...probably because the readers can be funnier than the actual writers for the strip often times. :P

That's a good idea. Like family circus. Let us come up with a punchline.
there was one from family circus that I thought was 'different'.
something about one kid with another, looking at a picture of one of the kids as a baby. Line went something like "that was you when you were cute. What happened?" The look on his eyes were a bit odd too.
oh well.

That's true, but not by me.  I would have used "Idaho" instead of "Utah" and it would have been (IMHO) a lot funnier and a lot more accurate.

Yes, that is Idaho's spring in a nutshell. No exaggeration. :P

Our kitchen thermometer is so confused it's not showing the temperature anymore for fear that it is probably wrong.  It's showing the time instead.

Its about time... we got a thunderstorm :)
last night, I had my room window wide open, hearing the rain, wind and thunder, seeing all that lightning :)

We had a thunderstorm early yesterday evening.
I know you're in Minnesota... it could have been the same one.
Title: Re: It's about time...
Post by: VANGUARD on March 20, 2012, 02:47:54 PM
quite possible. I heard the west suburbs get hit more so than other areas. At least, I think I heard that.
you mentioned Minnesota, and I'm like, I think that's in my profile. It is. I also see my profile is getting a little outdated. I'm starting to talk to that girl again but it's been a bit slow lately.

Wait, Vanguard and Kaiaatsel are Minnesotans too? So many Minnesotans. We should have a paaaaartay. :P

Not angry mad; but crazy mad?  Heck yeah!

IHateHackers is a loonie and he's worth a dollar.  And most of you Americans don't understand why we're so quick on the defensive when someone mistakes us for one of you.
Title: Re: It's about time...
Post by: Scyphi on March 23, 2012, 06:11:02 AM
We're Americans. We're ignorant. It comes with the job, see. :P

Actually, most of the Canadians I've met seem to be just as American as the next guy, so I can at least understand some of the confusion.

Well for that matter so are Mexicans, and Brazilians, and even Peruvians...

The real question, though, the one that's burning a hole in everyone's pocket, is what to tag this topic as.

Considering he started talking about minnesota, it's an easy mistake to make.

And if you're trying to be funny, it's really not working.

Minnesotan or Cadandian, we both live in North "America"

See?  You don't get it because you're not Canadian.  Which proves I'm Canadian.
