Coming into work today, I noticed how the fog emphasized the lack of anything, including topography in central illinois.

I don't know how many people here have ever witnessed a big storm rolling across the prarie. It's really amazing. You can see it coming from miles away, see the clouds churning as it gets closer and closer, and see them light up with flashes of lightning, and the thunder rolling across the countryside. It's more breathtaking than any mountian. It's scary and awe-inspiring at the same time. Maybe storms on the ocean are the same, I've never seen one, but it's certanly more impressive than anything you'd ever see in hill country.

I commend you central Illinoisans. I could never live in a place like that. For me, the flatness isn't that bad, but the absolute lack of any tree cover is painful.
I like to rank Kansas as boring, but more because of the lack of interesting cities than the topography. It's basically rolling hills of wheat so at least the roads go up and down a little. Indiana sounds more of the flat boring state, but at least the have Indianapolis.
