FYI, another aspect of Minnesota living is that the ground freezes hard in November (normally). That means that there is no plant growth until it thaws normally in April or May. This ground freezing occurs to a depth of about 4 feet and because of that all permanent heated structures must have frost footings that go to a depth of 42 inches or more.

Of course there are floating slabs for sidewalks and standalone garages etc which are subjected to the annual punishment of freeze thaw. Minnesota roads are normally in terrible condition because of the annual freeze/thaw.

Contributing to the terrible roads is the liberal government insists on wasting money on mass transit with a focus on rail lines to nowhere that are subsidized with taxes and fees from automobiles. I.E. ALL taxes and fees on cars that use the roads does NOT go to roads.

have to agree on the roads and parking lots.

saw a pothole about 18 inches by 24 inches and about 7 or 9 inches deep over at the parking lot for the Brooklyn Park Petco almost at the corner of where entrance to the parking lot off of the street there.

Thanks, I speak the truth as I know it. Having worked in Chicago and observed HUGE potholes that you can spot by the pile of hubcaps beyond the craters, Minnesota now has some of the same damaging road hazards as Chicago.

I often wonder if Government is in kahoots with car repair shops because they have plenty of time to fix the roads but don't. Guess we have discussed another hazard of Minnesota living. However having worked on Atlanta back in the 1970s there were also big potholes there and there is no frost there to blame just regular old failed Government.

This is a little off topic, but how is it that you can't even spell your own name? Is it chirstine, chistine, or christine? You have spelled it all of these ways. My Mothers' name was Christine, so I was just wondering.
And, yes the weather is one of the many things about Minnesota that sucks! LOL

I'm terrible on the keyboard thing. I do PC clean every day to make sure I don't get infected and am always putting in my name on Topix and the multiple other blogs I coverse on.

Many people in Minnesota say it's difficult to get people to move to Minnesota but once they are here they love it and won't leave.

I really don't understand that. If the summer bugs don't get ya, the freezing winters will and the Libertards for sure get ya.

Coming from Columbus, it will be a culture shock. I used to be an engineer for a company with a factory there, and spent a lot of time in Columbus.

1. There is no Victory Drive in the Minneapolis area, thankfully.

2. If you want sweet tea, you have to make it yourself, but I was never a fan of sweet tea anyway.

3. Coke only replies to Coca cola.

4. The mustard style barbecue sause ala Fat Freddies and Country's barbecue is only present at one chain, Famous Dave's, and it isn't as good as what you get in Columbus.

5. There are no poisonous snakes, scorpions, or cockroaches the size of poodles in Minnesota(Palmetto bugs). We do have a shorter growing season, and if outdoors, the mosquitoes can be quite an intense experience near a swampy area.

6. There arent' many good places for fresh seafood at inexpensive prices. No Sal and Phils crawfish, or shrimp Po Boys. We do have lots of good restaurants.

7. In Minnesota, you can't carry a loaded gun in a gun rack in the back window of your pickup truck. While there are obvious benefits to this, the drivers up here are more likely to do rude things.

8. In Minnesota most houses have basements. Not sure if that means anything or not, but it is a good place to go in case of a tornado.

9. Speaking of tornadoes, after one, we don't have the "professional tornado witnesses" up here. You know the guy at the trailer park in the wife beater t-shirt that says, "yeah, i heard it coming, sounded like a freight train, etc."

10. We do have a boatload of liberal democrats up here. Most live in the cities of Minneapolis, St Paul, and Duluth. If you are more conservative, try not to pick a liberal city or suburb to live in. Your taxes will be higher, and you will get things like $50k drinking fountains and "free" appliance recycling. Additionally, Minneapolis and St Paul have the highest per student cost in the public school system up here, for some of the worst results both by standardized test scores and by graduation rates. If education is important, research the school system your children will be attending before you buy the house. New Brighton? so-so. Edina, Wayzata, Plymouth, Minnetonka, good. Eden Prairie, Lakeville, Apple Valley, Eagan, Woodbury, etc. all good public school districts as well.

Many fine private schools up here as well.
