If you are freezing your butt off its cause its winter in Michigan and that means cold and snow and we have it worse than 48 other states. According to Thrillist, out of all 50 states, Michigan has 2nd worst winter if you are wondering who is #1 its not Alaska, yes Michigan winters are worse than Alaska which is ranked right behind Michigan. The reasons why Michigan winters are worse are:

  • Winter usually starts before Thanksgiving and ends after Easter.
  • Thanks to lots of cloud coverage, Michigan is in a perpetual state of grey.
  • Not just regular snow but a "wintery mix of precipitation" all winter long.
  • Nothing to do outside, recreation there is none during Michigan winters.

Plus, to make Michigan winters worse, according to MLive, some parts of the U.P are colder than Northern Alaska.
