We have an adage in Nebraska.

"If you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes. It'll change."

Same here, but I'm not in the midwest.

Well are you going to keep us in suspense about where you are? Now I need to know all the states people have this saying in.

If you're going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the Gods, and the nights will flame with fire.

Personally, I was 100% serious before, I saw a thing a while back where someone had collected examples quoting it as coming from every state.

I've personally been told that aphorism in Minnesota, North Dakota, Massachusetts, Vermont, Texas, Florida, and Colorado.


If anything, it's the standard response to the standard conversation opener of "so how about that weather?"

I can confirm the same saying for Michigan. We have the honor of being the hardest place in the world to predict weather though, so we win.
