How can Midwestern states that directly border the South be "Upper Midwestern"? Only Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan (sometimes only the UP) are Upper Midwestern. Anything else is just regular Midwest or Great Plains.

That would be like me saying that Tennessee, Kentucky, Arkansas, and Virginia are the Deep South from my Northern perspective.

Well I can say for sure that they aren't considered "the North" from a southern point of view, and they aren't really Midwest either. What do you want them to be? Would Great Lakes be okay with you?

Everybody thinks that their perspective is the correct one it seems. My comment was from my point of view - not yours. I don't care if you think it's correct or not to be honest. You can think whatever you want to about TN KY AR VA or any state you can name.

Are you trying to say that Minnesota isn't part of the Midwest...? AND that it isn't part of the North? Uh...? Do you not believe Minnesota exists?

Honestly I understand and respect that you have your own mental map, but your "southern perspective" is a heck of a lot less important and relevant than the perspectives of the people who actually live here.

Apparently Seattle being the northernmost major city in the contiguous US is not northern enough? I can understand confusion over SLC (even though it's as north as New York City, believe it or not) but SEATTLE?

Of course Seattle is a PNW city, but not "the North" in the way the term is typically used of Northern cities in the U.S.--just like no one calls Los Angeles or Phoenix "the South."
