This week's Friday Five is:
Five things I have learned since moving to Minnesota.
1. Some Minnesota parking meters are equipped with an electrical plug which the car owner can use to plug in the block heater in his/her car so the car will not freeze solid and will start when the owner finishes their shopping.
2. The teensy road signs seen in ditches are for snowmobiles.
3. It's a good idea to carry kitty litter in your car, even if you don't own a cat.
4. When it is 10 degrees Farenheit or lower, they close down the car washes so you don't get frozen into your car when you drive home.
5. I learned to do the "Minnesota Boot Bang." This is when you walk across the gunky, snowy parking lot to your car, you open the door, then as you climb in, you bang the side of your boot against the lower part of the car to knock the slushy, filthy snow off your boot before you get into the car.
How about you? Have you moved to a new place and learned some things you didn't know before?
