The Top Ten
I live in Wisconsin and that is how I know and how to get used to it!
I don't think that is a midwest issue, there is unpredictable weather in many states from the West and East coasts as well, it just something you wont really experience in California and other "lucky" states, but with global warming it could be an issue for all places - germshep24
In Seattle this isn't a problem. We get...rain. - SirSheep
I grew up there growing up in the Midwest I loved it the unpredictable weather
Coming from a Midwestern(er) I only understand this, #2, and #4.
So imagine it’s 60 degrees and sunny. Seems like a nice day right? Well the wind will make it seem worse.
Ah yes, Lake Michigan in the summer is beautiful. - PackFan2005
Yes, even in California going to Lake Tahoe is the best thing ever - germshep24
Lakes are great here too. They're always freezing cold though - SirSheep
I agree, even though I'm not a midwestern(er) - darthvadern
Trucks are awesome, though in the city is becomes a burden because all your friends come to you when they need something moved - germshep24
I'd rather have a vehicle I can rely on, something that can get me through snow and ice, not some fast sports car. city people just don't get this. - RustyNail
Not only are they good for doing work they’re perfect for having fun too. Just tie a rope to the back and then you can go mudding/ sledding - Randomator

I'm not even a Midwesterner and I agree - TwilightKitsune
The only purpose for a gun outside of war is shooting animals to feed your family. In the city there is no need to go hunting and therefore there is absolutely no purpose to have a gun or rifle in the country it is simply much easier to go to the forest and stalk and kill a deer, it makes the day go by faster and creates a bonding experience with your son or daughter - germshep24
Statistically speaking you are more likely to hurt yourself with a gun during a break in than the person doing the robbery, everyone likes to think their John Wick when it comes to emergencies, but the sad truth is most are just one of the random guys that are there to be shot by John Wick - germshep24
Go "up north" during deer season. You'll find thousands of guys with high powered rifles hunting. You'll also find little to no murders, killings, or deaths because of those rifles. It's not the gun, it's the person doing the shooting...
Yes in the country everybody knows each other, it is harder to murder when everyone knows each other. - germshep24

In case you’re wondering what corn hole is it’s the Midwest name for “bean bag toss.” - Randomator

They are a thing of beauty - Randomator
Amazing - RawIsgore
Not really a midwest thing, they happen all over the states it just isn't as special in a city or a place where you have a boardwalk or theme parks
