Thrillist.com ranked all 50 states by how terrible their winters are. They based it on the average temps . . . how much snow fall they get . . . how well the roads are cleared . . . and just how people there feel about the weather this time of year. And the state with the worst winters in the entire United States is Minnesota. As my good friend comedian C Willi Myles likes to remind me, the border is open, you can escape at any time.

The rest of the top 10 states with the worst winters are Michigan . . . Alaska . . . North Dakota . . . Maine . . . South Dakota . . . Wisconsin . . . Idaho . . . Montana . . . and Massachusetts. How Iowa didn't make this list is beyond me! I lived there for six years and know the winters suck!
