Michigan happens to have a great college football team. It just happens to be in LANSING, not Ann Arbor. My favorite big ten team, the Spartans.

I can't imagine living somewhere with such low amounts of snow, is there snow on the ground all winter long? Here there is always snow on the ground from Late November to March. and i like it that way.

We did have a winter where there was spots when the snow would melt and it was nothing but ugly dead grass... i hope it doesn't get like that this winter.

No, we don't get snow on the ground all winter long at all.

They aren't that different. Michigan is snowier, and MN is colder with WI in the middle that's about it.

The coldest area of Wisconsin is the belt that stretches from Hayward east to Tomahawk and north to Manitowish Waters. Last winter that area had an average temperature for the entire winter season of 4F. -30F low temperatures in March as well.

Well if snow is your thing, head to West or North Michigan/the UP. If cold is your thing, the western portion of Minnesota away from Lake Superior.

The Dakotas are very similar to Western Minnesota in that they have super frigid winters but snowfall is still not as high as West Michigan or North Michigan. Still they definitely get snow but not the same degree as Duluth or Grand Rapids.

Right, just far enough from the Great Lakes to be away from moderating effects, and up on a giant plateau where altitude affects temperatures as well.
