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.
Midwest, also called Middle West or the North Central States, is a region in northern and central United States, lying midway between the Appalachians and the Rocky Mountains and north of the Ohio River and the 37th parallel.
Yep...you know, just the other day my grandpa told me....lmao. So true
The Midwest—as defined by the federal government—comprises the states of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
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."
basically if you live in illinois, there's a reason everyone says they live in chicago. nobody remembers "JOLIET" and "ROCKFORD" off the top of their heads
Same ritual here in the uk but we say 'right then' as we slap our knees and rise out of a chair.
"All of the people that run the account live in the Midwest. We endorse the simple and warm culture of living in an area of the Midwest that is usually seen as a flyover," the team explained.
The Northwest Territory entered the United States in 1783 at the conclusion of the American Revolution and was organized under a series of ordinances that set the precedent for the admission of future territories into the Union.
Although all my family is Dutch and still living in the Netherlands, we appear to be from the Midwest....
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.
Not being able to have a conversation outside because of cicadas.
Despite regional economic shifts adverse to the Midwest, the region has continued to be the most important economic region in the United Stated, leading all other sections in value added by manufacture and in total value of farm marketings.
IM SCARED, HE KNOWS US MIDWESTERNS AND IT'S FRIGGIN ACCURATE
I mean, we do bother clearing a spot in front of the drivers seat, and whatever side window/backwindow combo for whatever turn we plan on making.
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.
this is how all my conversations w/ my friends go-ope sorry yeah yeah no dude its fine noo but I'm sorry bout that I really am its fine its fine it was my fault no it was mine I said its FINE joe
We're is the person now that said it sounded Australian on other comments?
I grew up in Michigan and moved to NY, I died a little inside when I finally had to start calling my pop soda because I got tired of explaining it, but they will never take my "opes" and whispered apologies.
Here in sodak, anything is possible. February and have had almost NO snow at all this winter
This is also an East Coast Canadian thing.....the letter "R" is casually tossed into strange places, like the end of the name Emma (Emmer) and the word wasp (warsp),. I love it
Yas..... must get to the food. No matter wat
yep we're pretty lame here in illinois. except for the few ikea, the malls, portillo's, chicago, and springfield. other than that we might as well not be here.
Also the Alaskans!! I have vivid memories of these in Alaska.
Um yeah, why waste money on a plane trip? According to my dad if my parents and older siblings take turns driving, we won't even have to stop for the night on the way there or back.

I had an overwhelming urge to comment on nearly every one of these. Never has a post seemed more relatable. I have lived in exactly 3 states. Missouri, Illinois and Iowa. I've had cows, goats and pigs in the back of my SUV. Good hay that's been put up right makes me deliriously happy. At least a few times a year a neighbor pulls up to ask if the cows that are out belong to us. At least once a year they do. I DO know when it's going to rain. I hate putting people out by asking for help. The phrase 'going to town' is a permanent part of my vernacular. As is 'ope, so sorry' and 'wouldn't be so bad if that wind wasn't blowing.' The town I live near has 17,000 people and the only walmart for miles. When people from our area say they're 'going to town,' they mean they're taking a trip to Kirksville so they can get their shopping done.
Lol!!! Midwesterners sound like Canadians!
Yes! I was thinking this all through these.
Do Canadians randomly ask a dark-eyed person like me, 'Are you Jewish or n-word?" on the street? B/c happened to me four-five times in a year in the US Midwest, and I pretty much gave up on the whole region b/c of that.
That's the bad side of this area. I don't like it either and I've lived here all my life. There's not as much diversity here in the midwest and tribalism is WAY too common. We aren't all like that I promise. I get excited every time I see someone from a different ethnic background because the endless parade of overfed white folks gets awfully damned repetitive.
let's just say these folks thought I must be from NYC or Chicago... for being a shade less pale, apparently, and I do mean "a shade". Not to say racist jerks aren't *everywhere* (welcome to the world) but total strangers on the *street* would demand to know "where you're from". I'd say "America as in the US," and they'd snort and roll eyes and ask me to be honest. ???? Uh....-kay?
US is very conservative outside the large cities and the east and west coast. Liberals tend towards oceans, mountains, and big, busy, diverse cities.
I'm white Canadian and have non white friends in Vancoiver who have never experienced this, however on moving to a small town in BC this does happen a lot. It is likely common in areas where there are very few visible minorities...I am sorry to hear that anyone has to deal with this anywhere
I was wondering why these were so relatable haha, glad I'm not the only one thinkin that!
From what I’ve gathered I’m apparently Midwestern
I feel a bit that way and do not even live in America
