Henrietta is not the east side.. and if you go south of Henrietta, things get very hilly...Letchworth is south of Henrietta and I wouldn't consider that flat.

I know that. I just said earlier that you get real hills when you get onto the Allegheny plateau. Letchworth gorge is part of that. :V

I think we might be having two different conversations here.

I always figured the Midwest was Iowa and surrounding states.

That's a pretty good guess..all states that border Iowa are the Midwest for sure, but so are the rest included by the Census Bureau. The Census Bureau has it down perfectly IMO.

For me, the Midwest begins (from west to East) on the Eastern sections of Montana, Wyoming, Colorado.

From North to South:

The Canadian border down through the Dakota's, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, and the Texas Panhandle.

The Eastern Boundry:

Eastern edge of Wisconsin, Illinois, Missouri.

So you're saying that everything that isnt the eastern edge of MO is what... the Great Plains?

The eastern boundary is the Pennsylvania/Ohio border.

South Eastern Missouri. Central and Northern Eastern Missouri is Mid-West, but the South East corner I believe isn't.

You are incorrect in saying SE MO is the south.
The BOOTHEEL is southern, but not the entire SE MO quadrant.
I'm from SE MO.
