Saturday Fluff: Winter in any cold state


It's winter in Illinois
And the gentle breezes blow
Seventy miles an hour
At twenty-five below.

Oh, how I love Illinois
When the snow's up to your butt
You take a breath of winter
And your nose gets frozen shut.

Yes, the weather here is wonderful
So I guess I'll hang around
I could never leave Illinois
I'm frozen to the ground!

My aunt in Illinois sent me this, but I can tell you, it applies to Minnesota too (or any other state that has had zero and below temperatures this winter).


  1. Oh MAN. I should replace "Illinois" with "Maine" and stick that up somewhere! Hahaha.

  2. I first heard that about 4-5 years ago as "Springtime in Alberta". It's a spoof sung to the tune of Ian Tyson's "Springtime in Alberta".

    Just substitute "Alberta" for "Illinois" and "springtime" for "winter" and you pretty much have it.
