How Miserable Are Michigan’s Winters Ranked
The summers in Michigan are what many of our best memories are made of. I always feel that the reason I live through Michigan winters is because the summers are beyond awsome. It would seem many feel the way I do, not a huge fan of freezing cold tempatures, slush and ice.
The folks at MLive got together and did a ranking of the states with the worst winters, and if you want to know if Michigan made the list.....just read on.
#Massachusetts....New England winters are COLD and lots of snow.
#9 Montana, where the average snowfall for most of the state is 71 inches a season.
#7 Wisconsin Freezing cold winters, and so much snow.
#6South Dakota From what I have heard their summers are boiling hot, so it would only stand to reason their winters are freezing cold.
#5 Maine New England winter.....enough said.
#4 North Dakota Brutally cold winters. Ever see the movie Fargo?
#3 Alaska Along with the cold and snow, our brothers and sisters north of us also have to deal with 67 straight days with no sunlight.
#2 Michigan ...and there it is. Thank goodness for snowmobiles and skiing, other wise I would not make it through a winter here. Fall goes by so fast and then BOOM its winter.
#1 on the list of worst states for winter....Minnesota. Minnesota sees almost constant snow in the winter and their winter lasts about 5 months whch is almost half a year!
Winters can be fun, just bundle up and head out on snow shoes, go skiing , or sledding , but a tip from me...I find it even more fun if I have some adult beverages before doing anything outside in winter.
