Some people tend to apply a deeper, often dumber meaning to many things. And that's why many things are the way they are today.
Well, I am from Michigan. I know that there is a lot of often bad stigma between the two peninsulas. The UP (Upper Peninsula) is thought of as hillbillies (However, we are Yoopers). The Lower Peninsula (Downstate) is more urbanized. Downstate will refer to Michigan as a whole more often than a Yooper will. The UP has significantly less people per square mile, more deer, and wildlife. The UP is differenciated because we dont like to be combined with the cement kingdom of violence and hate. However the people from downstate dont like to be differenciated because we arent very nice to the trolls that live under the bridge and commonly refer to the UP as God's Country and we dont tend to befriend Trolls or Fibs. If OP is from Michigan, the statement may be more offensive to the culture that Op realized (especially Downstate.)
You should also tell the kids that it has bipolar weather. I just looked outside and there is snow on the ground! Its a love hate relationship with this state.
