Every time it snowed pretty hard we all sat there listening to the radio hoping for a snow day. Then we'd spend the entire day out in the snow or on the lake skating.

Actually composed of two regions, the Northwest Territory, or the Old Northwest, and the Great Plains, you could say the Midwest has become more an idea than a region: an area of immense diversity but somehow consciously representative of a national average.

"'Midwest vs. Everybody' was a build-out of our original page, Iowa Chill," the creators of the fun online project told Bored Panda. "Most of the following is from the Midwest and we figured that people in Iowa have had similar experiences to people in Ohio or Indiana."

The Great Plains entered the United States in 1803 as part of the Louisiana Purchase. The Plains were to develop primarily agriculturally, but the Northwest Territory, blessed with both fertile soil and valuable natural resources (coal, oil, iron ore, and limestone), would develop both industrially and agriculturally.

I grew up in Wisconsin. 50 degrees would be shorts and t-shirt weather. Now that I live in Arizona, anything under 70 is definitely hoodie weather.

I was holding the door for a dude at work and he decided he was going to be funny and start walking really slow. So I stood there holding it all the way until he got there and then closed it on him and walked off. The doors need a badge-scan to go through so not a big deal but it amused me.

i live at the end of a cul de sac, so the snow plower would never completely plow our section of the road. my dad would always curse the mayor out and try to fix our snow blower. 10 things flying at my face later, he finally started to shovel. needless to say some of my worst memories growing up have been commemorated with shoveling snow.
