In this list of every state, ranked by how miserable its winters are, guess who the winner is!
Although I’m suspicious that we beat both Dakotas. I think I’d rather live in Minnesota than either of those places.
I came up with a balancing idea, though: if you suffer through winter in your state, you get to reward yourself by retiring to the complementary state on the list — just look at (51 – your state ranking). That’s the karmic redress you must someday pay. I’m looking forward to my twilight years in Hawaii; Hawaiians might not be as thrilled with the deal they’re getting.
