    It's important for our betters to let us know when we're wrong, otherwise how would we know?

    I would never consider Ohio to be an
    eastern state, but Kansas being a Western state is understnadable.

    OTOH People here make fun of St. Louis because it is quasi Southern in some manners, culture and traditions, midwestern in topography and weather, Eastern in architecture.

    How come MidWest doesn't mean the middle of the West? Really ya'll are the middle of the country.....right? Which makes you the "central"

    I don’t consider Kansas to be the Midwest. I think of them as a plains state. What does the article say about Kansas?

    Kansas *IS* a plains state as is Iowa. Some plains states are in the Midwest.

    There is nothing more Midwestern than the state of Iowa which is smack dab in the middle of the Midwest. But Iowa is also a plains State.

    Seattle has 37.7 inches of rainfall to St. Louis's 41. We're here, if you ever want to emigrate!

    But, but, but Jane! What about that Seattle Freeze? Can you see Ultralight embraced with open Midwestern-like arms? =
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    What are some visual indicators of being Midwestern?

    Ball caps are ubiquitous, along with being overweight. T-shirt and jeans uniform. Flannels. Scuffed up sneakers.
