Watch out Michiganders: It's tough!
Michigan, oh Michigan, what a great state! And Great Lake! Ha, ha get it? It's because Michigan is the Great Lake State. Ok, that was bad, but it is true. Michigan is a beautiful Midwestern state, nestled in the Upper Midwest Region. And yes, this state is shaped like a glove, or mitten. Due to its Northern position and proximity to Great Lakes Michigan, Huron, and Erie, the whole state of Michigan is no stranger to brutally cold winter temps, buckets of snow, and biting winds. But Michiganders tough it out through all of this intense weather, because they're hearty people who are more than capable to tolerate a bit of tough weather. They break out a few extra scarves and mittens and they're good to go. This is just one small part of what makes up a Michigander. These little pieces build up a complete image of what it really means to be from Michigan. There is a certain uniqueness to the state that manifests itself in the lingo, dialect and mannerisms that have developed in this Great Lake State. In fact, Michigan is the tenth most populous state in the United States and the 11th most extensive in terms of land area. Michigan first joined the United States in 1837 and has been an amazing part of the country ever since. Prestigious universities, amazing businesses and incredible people all get to call this state home. All of this should sound familiar to a local, as any local would know all of this trivia about Michigan! Odds are that almost all locals possess this knowledge of the local lingo and mannerisms. Up for the challenge?
