When the tornado season occurs, Oklahoma dust blows all over Kansas and into Nebraska. Seems the tornadoes always start in the south around Oklahoma and move northward. I’m amazed that there’s any dirt left in the state.

Oklahoma. Reasons: 1. It has more significant cities, OKC and Tulsa. Kansas has Wichita, and border KCK. Nebraska has Omaha, but also a border city, not that there is anything wrong with border cities.
2. Oklahoma has the warmest weather, and the best storms (I love storms). 3. Oklahoma is just over the border from Dallas/Ft. Worth. Nice to be close to a major metro.

Is there a "none of the above" option?

Nebraska
That's if I had no choice. Not to bash the states, I'm just not thrilled with the states since they lack a whole lot of fun. Omaha is a great city though, which is the reason I went with Nebraska.

Oklahoma, easily.

Mostly because of its Southern influence, rich history, nice REASONABLY sized cities, diverse ecosystem, great food, and down home feel.

With that being said, I would live in or right by Kansas City or in or right around Omaha.

Right on the money here. Culturally Oklahoma is nothing like the Midwest.

Oklahoma, as the Census accurately specifies, is part of the West South Central with Texas, Louisiana, and Arkansas as it shares much more regional affinity with these states.

I've always liked the great plains states - my favorite area of the country. Of the 3, I would choose western Nebraska.

Of these three, Nebraska would be the easy choice ( more snow, nearer Chicago, Minneapolis, etc), but in reality I wouldn't choose it if given other options....
