If you're from the Midwest, the people behind this Instagram account will have your feed filled with the funny things only we understand.

The other day, when we had one of those unseasonably warm days followed by a crazy thunderstorm and tornado sightings, then a couple of inches of snow the next day, my wife shared a meme with me about how Midwesterners act once we get one of those warm March days.
