you live in Pittsburgh .


If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don't work there,
you live in Pittsburgh


If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time,
you live in Pittsburgh


If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone
who dialed a wrong number,
you live in Pittsburgh

If an old chair left in a cleared parking spot on a snowy street looks to you like a declaration of the sovereignty over that spot,
you live in Pittsburgh


If 'Jumbo' doesn't refer to a fictional elephant but means a kind of luncheon meat,

during a raging blizzard without flinching,
you live in Pittsburgh


If you carry jumper cables in your car and your wife knows how to use them,
you live in Pittsburgh



If you design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit,
you live in Pittsburgh


If the speed limit on the highway is 55 mph --
you're going 80 and everybody is passing you,
you live in Pittsburgh


If driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow,
you live in Pittsburgh



If you know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter,
still winter and road construction,
you live in Pittsburgh

you live in Pittsburgh


If you find 10 degrees 'a little chilly',
you live in Pittsburgh

So true!

I remember the one near East Village Shopping Center (when you're leaving Wilkinsburg toward Verona)...that one was always closed in the winter. I remember it because my 6-to-9-year-old baseball team stopped went there after losing the league championship in extra innings.

Hey hey hey!!! WTH is that all about?

I used to love fried jumbo and cheese sandwiches when I was a kid! Now that I know what jumbo is made out of, I can't even look at it much less eat it. :yuck:

Sadly, we haven't had a blizzard or 2 feet of snow here in the Burgh in a loooong time but I'm hoping that changes this winter! :hope: :banana:

If you carry jumper cables in your car and your wife knows how to use them,
you live in Pittsburgh

Most of us Pittsburgh women also can change our own oil too! :thumbsup:

Well - unless you are going through the Squirrel Hill or Fort Pitt tunnels. :chuckle:

It used to be that way back in the day, but not anymore. We have fall, fall with a little winter mixed in, a month or so of spring, a long summer and back to fall again. :banging:
