    You know you're a northerner when... (for you it'd be southerner)

    Just for laughs, about life in northern Norway. Sadly a lot of this is true stories.

    You know you are a northerner when...

    ... you call the recent hurricane "fresh air"
    ... you call all storms by family names or "he"/ "she"
    ... you meet another northerner abroad and act like life-long friends
    ... shorts, bikini and sandals are family heirlooms of unknown use
    ... in winter, the city engineer lies on his back changing bulbs in the streetlights
    ... in winter, you tunnel out of your house
    ... public transport leaves every monday and still caters for the need
    ... you don't buy garden furniture, you just sit in the snow when the sun is out. The sun is gone before you're cold anyway
    ... you've had enough mosquito bites to end up in the emergency room
    ... when you pack away winter clothes, you take out the summer mitts and summer hats
    ... a warm fireplace in june is considered normal
    ... summer passed when you were using the toilet.
    ... when you are south, people ask you if you know person xx... who lives 10 hours away from you.
    ... when you are south your whiteness makes you the most exotic person there
    ... southerners believe you when you say average winter temperature is minus 60
    ... southerners ask you if you get the daily newspapers

    Sounds like a real "cool" place to live. Now you have stated all of the good points of the place, tell us some of the negatives.
    Which is worse, ignorance or apathy...I don't know and don't care.

    Gimp's picture is from the mountainpasses in the south, about 60-62 North. I live at 67N and the tunneling business occasionally happens at 70N plus. Elevation here? 0 to 900 meters.

    We get a lot of snow and naturally have a building/ clothes cultures that evolved around this. (for instance I got 8" insulation in my walls and 12" in the roof, never seen anything like that on NZ)

    The negatives? Never pick up a woman in winter, you don't know what you'll find underneath the clothes...
    Also, not nearly enough deer or other game animals....

    The insulation in some of the "green" "ego" houses is heading in that direction here, seen a few with 6" in the walls & over 10" in the ceilings.
