We who live in Ohio and love it had another typical week of fall weather. It was a blowin stuff everwhichaways and reminded me of a Jeff Foxworthy routine that I thought we might want to revisit.

Jeff Foxworthy on Ohio All I have to say is "Go Bucks!"

You might be from Ohio (pronounced O-hi-uh) if:

You think all Pro football teams are supposed to wear orange !

You know all the 4 seasons: winter, still winter, almost winter and road construction.

You live less than 30 miles from some college or university.

You know what a buckeye really is, and have a recipe for candied ones.

"Toward the lake" means "north" and "toward the river" means "south (or southeast)."

You know if other Ohioans are from southern or northern Ohio as soon as they open their mouths.

You can spell words like Cuyahoga, Olentangy, Bellefontaine, Tuscarawas, Wapakoneta and you know which letter is doubled in Cincinnati!

"Vacation!" means spending a couple days at Cedar Point in the summer and deer hunting in the fall.

Your school classes were canceled because of cold.

Your school classes were canceled because of heat.

You've had to switch from "A/C" to "heat" in the same day.

You know what should be knee-high by the Fourth of July.

You end your sentences with an unnecessary preposition. For example: "Where's my coat at?"

You think of the four major food groups as corn, pork, beer, and Jell-O salad with marshmallows.

You carry jumper cables in your car.

You know what 'pop' is!

You design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.

Driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow. (Amen!)

You think sexy lingerie is tube socks and a flannel nightgown.

The local paper covers national and international headlines on one page but requires six pages for sports. (That's the TL and aint it great!)

You know which leaves make good toilet paper.
