I actually take grreat pride whenever I see that Minnesota has claimed another, Lower 48 low temp of the day on the weather summaries, tho it's nice that those lows are often occurring a couple hundred miles away. I also like the likely image of these wussies peeing their pants with just the thought of a below 32 degree temp fracturing their fragile shell of existence.

LOL, so people who have a different opinion annoy you.

My SIL from South Carolina visited us a couple of years back on Halloween weekend. One evening we saw her shivering when the temps dipped into the 50s. We asked why she didn't bring her heavy jacket. Her reply: "I did!"

Well, can we send you back some of these snowbird wussies who start whining and become pathetic vegetables every time it gets above 85 degrees down here?

No, differing opinions are fine. It's people who are smug, condescending, and have a warrantless air of superiority (while having little to no familiarity with the subjects they discuss) who irritate me.

Minneapolis boosters have a hard time conceding anything. Including the city's god awful weather. Literally 6 months out of the year their average temperature does not break 60 degrees


7 months out of the year the average low is under 40. With Feb's average low being 12 degrees. 12 DEGREES

Now, if you are a hepster with NO DAY JOB, then sure maybe the climate is for you.

But for those of us with actual day jobs (sic: legitimate careers) it would a miserable place to exist.

Half the year it is cold as hell when you get up and go to work and cold as hell when you get off. With most of the "sun" not even taken advantage of because you are at work.

Not picking on Denver here, but an interesting comparison for this poster. Eight months out of the year, Denver has a colder average low than Minneapolis. I'm sure there are more facts out there that I could share. Just showing that it's not always that cold. Wizard has a thing against the Midwest....take all Wizard's posts with a grain of salt.

12 months out of the year, Denver has a warmer average high than Minneapolis (significantly higher in the winter months).
