Brrrrr! It's Winter!

I looked at my Google home page today and we all had the same temperatures! Well, close. Minneapolis was actually the hot spot this morning with 33 degrees.

My email brought be another sure sign of winter. A friend of mine in South Dakota sent me this photo that she took recently.

"BS" is not what you think. Sure, Legislators throw around a lot of BS, but the sign is actually referring to a used car sale turned community event called The Blizzard Sale. People in South Dakota get bored in the winter, what can I say? They celebrate a used car sales gimic. There are lots of signs that say "BS is coming" and little one liners in the local classified section. Along with a big bunch of car ads for the event. They give out hot dogs and coffee and they even hold a "Miss Blizzard" Beauty Pagent. The stores have BS sales and the restaurants have BS specials. I lived in Pierre, BS was fun!

SD Legislative session begins today,Feb 11th, and the Blizzard Sale was Feb 7th. Big Events! Lots of excitement! But together on one sign is just hilarious!

I am so ready for spring. We did get the bike out on Saturday but just went around town. Too cold to take it out on the highway. We were able to wear our chaps and glad we had them. At least winter won't be staying around for long.

Wow! I'm so happy that we were the warm spot that day! All our snow (well most all) melted that day. I didn't even wear a coat! So sad when a day above freezing and we think it's spring.

The sign is hilarious! BS is definitely coming.

You should post that on one of those funny sign sights. Then it can become the latest in email joke signs.
