You push 2 for English

Loved it. And I lived in MN for over 15 years. The list was overly kind.

I thought the list was right on, for every location, lol.

And the whole pronunciation thing for Missouri . . . hubby (native of St. Louis) has, over the years, dropped some of the more noticeable Missouri linguistic traits (he spent most of his career in Kansas and there is a difference). But he still occasionally lapses into that lovely A/O and added R pronunciation that I noticed as a child listening to Truman. ( I was born in the Eisenhower years, but was fascinated w/ the dapper former President).

Warshington
Horse and form sound very much like Harce and farm

I am a native Southerner, so I tend to notice and enjoy various differences in accent and pronunciation.

There's more to Arizona than Phoenix

where I live:

1. every day since the monsoon started it has rained in the afternoon to cool off the 95 degree high
2. it get into the 70s at night

OK we had the Monument Fire and a freeze last winter but for the most part that has grown over.

Phoenix winters, unknown to many, are not tropical weather like Florida. When I walk in the mornings Jan/Feb/March, I have a winter jacket, scarf and mittens on. After 6 at night, back on w/ the winter jacket. Afternoons get relatively warm, 60-65 and above, but am's and pm's are not very warm.
