15 Signs You're From Ohio

Everyone is proud of the state they're from, but there is no prouder resident than Ohioans. Ohioans have a very strong sense of pride. No matter where you may move or travel to, Ohio will always hold a special in our hearts. Here are some signs you may be from Ohio.

1. One word: Cornhole

It is not called beanbag toss. It is THE game perfect for tailgates.

2. You're used to cheering for bad professional sports teams.

The Cleveland Browns haven't had a consistent winning season since the 1990s.

3. You experience four seasons in one day.

It's not uncommon to have your A/C and heat on in the same day. It can go from 60 degrees and sunny to a blinding snowstorm.

4. You've experienced real humidity.

You've never experienced real humidity until you've been to Ohio in the summer. It is relentless and has you begging for a rain storm to break the humidity.

5. You're taught from a young age voting is important.

Ohio is a swing state that has often been the deciding vote in some presidential elections.

6. County fairs are a go-to event in the summer.

7. You automatically respond with I-O when someone shouts O-H.

This ritual seems to scare the people from other states.

8. Dodging potholes in the winter become a game of MarioKart.

Winter brings potholes big enough to swallow a car.

9. People tell you you have an accent.

10. It is not called soda.

A carbonated beverage is called pop.

11. Cornfields are part of your everyday landscape.

13. Hitting a deer while driving doesn't just happen in the movies.

They come out of nowhere.

14. Buckeyes are a type of candy.

15. We know "The Jake" is not actually a person.

Home of the Cleveland Indians.

No matter where you may end up, Ohio will always be your home.

We Need More Than Memorials this Memorial Day
Cape Cod Irish

When I was a child, I used to look forward to Memorial Day Weekend from the time I returned to school after Christmas vacation.
