You could file this under "Tell us something we don't know". According to the Thrillist, Minnesota ranks #1 in having the worst winters. Apparently this was decided by someone's research and debating with some friends, so it is subjective. But it's hard to argue against it. Sure, you could say (as I probably would) that North Dakota is worse. I've lived there before. The winters were not all.

Minnesota does get the worst of it all. Crazy amounts of snow and crazy wind chills. But it's our winter and one thing Minnesotan's seem to do is make the most of it. Ice fishing, snowmobiling, skiing, sledding. We do have some fun!

Here's the top 5:

  1. Minnesota
  2. Michigan
  3. Alaska
  4. North Dakota
  5. Maine
