    We're all moving to Michigan by the year 2100

    Okay so maybe mosquitoes or tornadoes don't make a region uninhabitable.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Dibs on North Dakota! I figure everyone will move to the glove and leave me alone.
    I don't pretend to understand Brannigan's Law. I merely enforce it.

    Well, I think people should migrate to NEOH instead of MI, but only after I buy a bunch of cheap real estate first for my heirs.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Until the first blizzard and everyone looks at each other with a unified WTF expression.
    If you want different results in your life, you need to do different things than you have done in the past. Change is that simple.

    Yeah, I try to explain what winters are like in the northern Midwest to people here. I explain about the grey days and January and February being a cold, sub freezing slog. One of the many things I don't miss.
    When did I go from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi?

    I don't know about blizzards galore. By the year 2100 the climate in Michigan will probably be more like what Kentucky is like now.

    That's what some reliable people are projecting.

    And Florida will be underwater and Georgia will be like Key West, but not with 'nice' ocean breezes.

    But maybe the migration patterns won't be so dramatic to MI or OH, but will just shift one or two state northward (normal FL patterns would shift to SC and GA, GA/SC/NC patterns to TN/KY, and so forth).
