    Here is what Jeff Foxworthy has to say about people who live in Upstate New York...

    Forget Rednecks.... If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don't work there, you live in Upstate New York. If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you live in Upstate New York.

    If Vacation means going anywhere south of New York City for the weekend, you live in Upstate New York. If you measure distance in hours, you live in Upstate New York. If you know several people who have hit a deer more than once, you live in Upstate New York.

    If you have switched from 'heat' to 'A/C' in the same day and back again, you live in Upstate New York. If you can drive 75 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching, you live in Upstate New York. If you install security lights on your house and garage but leave both unlocked, you live in Upstate New York.

    If you carry jumpers in your car and your wife knows how to use them, you live in Upstate New York. If you design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit, you live in Upstate New York.

    If the speed limit on the highway is 55 mph you're going 80 and everybody is passing you, you live in Upstate New York. If driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow, you live in Upstate New York.

    If you know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter and road construction, you live in Upstate New York. If you have more miles on your snow blower than your car, you live in Upstate New York. If you find 10 degrees 'a little chilly', you live in Upstate New York.

    If there's a Stewart's on every corner, you live in Upstate New York. If you think everyone else has a funny accent, you live in Upstate New York.

    If you actually understand these jokes, you live or have lived in Upstate New York.

    Cheers, Jock

    I lived there for 19yrs and now live in the Chicago suburbs. It's almost the same, no Stewarts, but many White Hen Pantries
