I got Chattanooga, Birmingham and Columbus (GA). Odd as I am originally from SoCal but I have spent the last 55 years in Georgia (2 in Macon, the rest in metro Atlanta).

I live in Washington state now, but I grew up in Des Moines, Iowa.

I got:
1. Omaha
2. Kansas City
3. Wichita

Makes sense to me...

Ya, sure, you betcha I would get Minneapolis/St. Paul as my #1!  Followed by Rockford, IL and Grand Rapids, MI.

Uffda, what a quiz!  Now off I go around the roundabout to the house kitty-corner from mine for a nice cold pop!  :-)
