    Ditter- Being a transplant from the Carolinas', I liked the flares joke the other day. But, having been in MN for 28 years now....that list is really close to how it is here. My DH is working on his new fish house right now, so he can drill a hole in the ice and wait for dinner to come to him in about January when the ice is 2 or 3 feet thick. I know it is hard to imagine, but there are actually roads plowed out on the lakes so the vehicles can pull their fishhouses out there and park them either for the day or some leave them until the end of Feb. when they have to be off the lakes.. Sometimes at night, out on the lakes, it looks like towns with all of the lights from the fishhouses. You would actually have to be here to believe it. But still...down south to me means Carolinas. :)

    I was raised in Ohio, so I know about ice fishing. Went once, that was enough for me. :|
