The votes are in. The states have all been ranked for which ones have the worst winters. Can you believe that Minnesota actually topped the list? Yes! We won...or should I say...lost?

Lets face it. We live for the stories we get to tell...we live for the four seasons all being different...We live for the 'experience'.  Even though we absolutely hate it when the air hurts to breath...we still want to live that experience.  Scraping our windows until we can't feel our fingers...the terrible 'thaw' feeling when you get in the car... why do we love the pain?


We love using our snow blowers. We love building snowman. We love making snow angles. We love dressing in layers. Honestly...when I moved to Kentucky, I had to throw my whole winter warddrobe in the garbage as there was NO where you could where a nice sweater and boots.

So here my the list of the states that lost to our snowy, cold and miserable winters:

The top 10 worst winter states are:

  1. Minnesota
  2. Michigan
  3. Alaska
  4. North Dakota
  5. Maine
  6. South Dakota
  7. Wisconsin
