This is why I moved from Ohio.....

This is how you know you live in Ohio....
This is so true...I've lived in both northern and southern Ohio, and might I add that you can also tell if someone is from a small town by the accent....I LOVE chocolate buckeyes...I'm guilty of excessive's POP bumper used to be held on by bungee cords until they snapped.........but it annoys me to no end when someone says "Krogers" or "Meijers"!

you're truly from ohio if...

You know all the 4 seasons: winter, still winter, almost winter and construction.

You live less than 20 miles from some college or university.

You know what a "buckeye" really is, and have a recipe for candy ones, and usually look around when someone says that they have buckeyes.

Michigan usually brings a scowl. (Unless your name is Phillip Konkle)

You know if other Ohioans are from southern or northern Ohio as soon as they open their mouths.

You know how to correctly spell Cincinnati.

"Vacation" means going to Florida, Hilton Head, or Florida.

You measure distance in minutes.

Your school classes were canceled because of cold.
Your school classes were canceled because of heat.

You've had to switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day, and maybe even use the "defrost" and "A/C" in the same day.

You end your sentences with an unnecessary preposition. Example: "Where's my coat at?"

You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both unlocked.

Drinking beer underage is a weekend ritual.

You carry jumper cables or bungee cords in your car.

You know what "pop" is.

Driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow.

The local paper covers national and international headlines on one page but requires six pages for sports.

You call it Krogers even though it is Kroger.

Girls wear miniskirts with uggs in the winter and complain of it being too cold outside.

Boys wear their pants at LEAST at their crack, if not lower.

You know someone that has a beat up pick-up truck. You also know someone that has a BMW.

You know what sweetest Day is.
