Most of that goes for Michigan too,except we have Tittaboasee. That may be spelled wrong I didnt bother to look it up. Its down state anyway. And we also have terms like "the thumb" and " the bridge " "U' per " and "Trolls". And if you ask anybody where they live they hold up thier right hand and use it like a map. I live in the middle of the palm by the way.

I think a few of those apply to the midwest in general. Very funny. Kentucky is the south. In IL we (anyone from the city north) think anything south of I-80, basically south of Chicago is the south.

Oh and 20 degrees is just chilly....sometimes you can just wear a sweatshirt in 20 degrees no problem. Hell in the midwest we'll still barbecue if it's above 0 degrees.
