Why Idaho is the best state.

Reasons:
1.Idahoans can drive during a raging blizzard through 7 feet of snow in 2 wheel drive going 75 mph without flinching.

2.Because we consider -20 degrees jacket weather.

3.Because we invented T.V.!

4.Because if you don't like the weather.... wait ten minutes.

5.POTATOES!

6.Because we measure distance in hours.

7.We have more miles on our snowblower than your car.

You heard our reasons now what about yours?

Re: Why Idaho is the best state.

I like Idaho because its the gateway to Washington State.
And we enjoy competing with their teams on the field in Portland and Seattle..

Re: Why Idaho is the best state.

People don't know what snow is until you come to Houghton, MI. We average about 6 inches a pop every time it snows. Which is almost everyday. Plus there is the fact that its a valley so its nothing but icy unplowed hills.

but Idaho does have some sweet landscapes, and a awesome blue football field!

Re: Why Idaho is the best state.

We wound up getting a lot more snow this winter than is usual here in WA. It was insane; snowed in for two weeks over break... I was sad because I couldn't make it to the shop to work on our cart. D:

Normally because of the ocean we get, like, six inches at most if it even bothers sticking. We got over two feet in a span of three days. Strange for this here climate. We're usually with you on that "wait ten minutes" thing.

Sorry, this phrase belongs to New England. Just ask Mark Twain.

Again... I'm pretty sure this could describe New England. (:

Re: Why Idaho is the best state.

xD We actually have some commercials here about "You know you're from Washington State" sort of things. Like... Obsessive-Compulsive Recycler, or socks with sandals... Then there's always the one that I never realized was true, that most people I know order coffee in way more than 5 words.
