You have Michigan and Minnesota mixed up. Minnesota gets colder, and Michigan gets snowier. However both states are VERY cold and very snowy. Its just that Michigan gets alot of lake snow Mn doesnt get, and those lakes also keep Michigan a couple of degrees warmer than Mn too. So while your freezing your but off in Mn at 30 below, its a warm and toasty 20 below in Michigan. Oh and since your shoveling a foot of new snow, youll feel warmer there too! lol

Are you serious?

Notice my post is appilcable to the OP and is not overtly, politically motivated. This ALexus character posts in nearly all the forums on CD with some politically charged, grammatically challenged, hogwash. Literally every single answer is politically charged...red state this, conservative hicks, blah blah blah.....I at least have the decency to leave my opinions in the appropriate forum and not subject the rest of you to them.

Further...I'm not sure who you are or why you feel as though your opinion is worth considering. So next time why don't you leave whatever strained thought you have in your head where it belongs.
