    I'm also from the Minneapolis, MN area also.
    I don't think it's too much. Just as long as it's enough to call off school.

    Don't send any of that snow South! We've had snow actually stay on the ground for several weeks now. That is not just unusual for us, it's downright WRONG. In an average winter we hardly even see any snow FALL, and when it does it usually melts within a week. I guess it's not coming from you folks who say you have too much, but whoever has given us this snow.... please take it back!

    Greetings from South Bend, IN.

    Found this on and thought I would share:

    You might be a Redneck Jedi if ...

    1) You've ever heard the phrase, "May the force be with y'all".

    2) Your Jedi robe is camouflage.

    3) You have ever used your light saber to open a bottle of Bud Light.

    4) At least one wing of your X-Wings is primer colored.

    5) You can easily describe the taste of Ewok.

    6) You have ever had a land-speeder up on blocks in your yard.

    7) The worst part of spending time on Dagobah is the dadgum skeeters.

    8) Wookies are offended by your BO.

    9) You have ever used the force to get yourself another beer so you didn't have to wait for a commercial.

    10) You have ever used the force in conjunction with fishing/bowling.

    11) Your father has ever said to you, "Shoot, boy, come on over to the dark side'll be a hoot".

    12) You have ever had your R-2 unit use its self-defense electro-shock thingy to get the barbecue grill to light.

    13) You have a confederate flag painted on the hood of your land-speeder.

    14) You ever fantasized about Princess Leah wearing Daisy Duke shorts.

    15) You have the canopy of your X-wing welded shut and you have to get in through the window.

    16) Although you had to kill him, you kinda thought that Jabba the Hutt feller had a pretty good handle on how to treat his women.

    17) You have a cousin who bears a strong resemblance to Chewbacca.

    18) You suggested that they outfit the Millennium Falcon with redwood deck.

    19) You were the only person drinking Jack Daniels during the cantina scene.

    20) If you hear: "Luke, I am your father...and your uncle."

    I am not alone. There are others who exist in the StarWars realm! I live near Huntley IL. I have only recently entered the internet world and have been sooo looking forward to finding others who share my passion. How many times did you go see the'Magic of Myth'exhibition at the Field Museum in Chicago. I went 3 times. Not near enough. My other life kept getting in the way. I read everything I can get ahold of. I collect 1st edition books,hardcovers with the dust jackets. Paperbacks when there's no HC. My collection has exceeded 78 volumes. I have started to include books-on-tape and the DarkHorse comics that are published book style. My family thinks I am nuts, maybe you will too. I am creating my own Jedi robes. Its slowly coming together,just having a problem with the boots. Any hep hair would be hot. Now those of you who would be JarJar bashers,read,listen. He just may become the help and/or hero Qui-Gon saw him to be.
