Tell Michiganders something we don't know...

The web-site Thrillis.com put together a list ranking the best state to be during the winter months, too the least desirable place to be. Of course, Hawaii ranked the loveliest place to be...

We all know how abusive winter in Michigan can be, but this review of our winters is brutal. Yet, they are not wrong with their observation. Michigan was ranked as the second worst place to experience winter in America. Here is what Thrillist.com has to say about the Mitten...

Winter in Michigan begins well before Thanksgiving and stretches far past Easter, which makes for four-to-six wearisome months of always-gray, always-cold, always-drizzly, but-rarely-snowy-in-a-good-way misery. Some other states may see colder temps or more snow, but Michigan winters are unrivaled for their utter lack of sunshine. The ceaseless cloud cover begins in October, and envelopes the state in a daily sense of gloom that only worsens when the apathetic sun slouches below the horizon at quarter-to-five.

So what state has the worst winter weather?!? It is Minnesota. In a nutshell it is because of all the different winter storms the state has to tolerate.

I suppose the good news is that Michigan is not the worst place to be in the winter months.
