Anchorage isn't that bad. It is the least windiest major city in the US according to this site so there is hardly ever a major wind chill factor. The bad part about the winters here if you don't like snow is that the snow comes and never goes away all winter but being outside is fairly comfortable.

I said MN, even though I've never been, it just seems like it gets REAL cold and has A LOT of snow.

What stories? I live in Denver and think the winters are better than the MidWest or NE. Last winter was unusual with the blizzard, but we don't have an unusual amount of snow this winter - maybe 3" on the ground from yesterday, but it'll be gone by the weekend. The weekend before last I was outside in shorts, drinking beer and barbequeing in the warm sun. Not too bad. Supposed to be at least upper 50s all this weekend, and in Denver, that feels quite warm, especially if you're in the sun. It's stronger up here you know!

Personally I'd be happy if my entire wardrobe consisted of flip flops (for those dress up times when bare feet aren't appropriate), shorts, and tank tops/t-shirts. Clothing bugs me!

I lived in Ohio, California and Texas. The very worst of the three was Ohio because of the blizzards and snow in the winter. The very best, of course was California.

How about Montana, Wyoming, or North/South Dakota? Of those, I'd say Wyoming. We get bad winds down through here. Montana gets the temps and snow that Wyoming does, but not quite the amount of wind that we get on the High Prairies.
