Pete Hanson

I'm just a regular Minnesota guy that grew up on the north-side of the Cities (Fridley), spent some quality time at the U of M, chill on the weekends at the family cabin near Duluth, bleed Vikings purple, and miss the North Stars. I have a short attention span; and enjoy Pink Floyd, Johnny Cash, Zac Brown, 80s hair bands, coffee, beer, scotch, and long sunset walks on the beach. (One of those isn't true.) I'm a two-time cancer survivor now (Colorectal 2002, Kidney 2014), and know that life is damn short -- so by all means we should be playing as hard and as often as we can. I think that's it. (Did I mention that I have a short attention span?) Hit me up below on Facebook & Twitter.

Minnesota Ranked Worst State for Miserable Winters

Sure, go ahead and call us the anti-Hawaii (because it's true). They have volcanos, warm Januarys, mountains, beaches, and canoes. Wait, wait! We have canoes too. And that's where it ends. They have the BEST winters, and we have the WORST. (Although we do have hockey, snowmobiles, and ice fishing.)
