          If you think it's cold as hell there then come up north a bit more. Seriously. MN is much colder than SD. I'm so glad spring is started to show.

          they get smoked.

            I was up in Duluth 4 years ago and it was the dead middle of summer and like 50 degrees.

              Try winter some time. I dare ya. Here is some Minnesota humor, man they're weird/cheesy.

              Official Minnesota temperature conversion chart

              60 above - New Jerseyites try to turn on the heat. People in Minnesota plant gardens.
              50 above - Californians shiver uncontrollably. People in Minnesota sunbathe.
              40 above - Italian and English cars won't start. People in Minnesota drive with the windows down.
              32 above - Distilled water freezes. Lake Mille Lacs water gets thicker.
              20 above - Floridians don coats, thermal underwear, gloves and woolly hats. People in Minnesota throw on a flannel shirt.
              15 above - Philadelphia landlords finally turn up the heat. People in Minnesota have the last cookout before it gets too cold.
              Zero - People in Miami start to expire. Minnesotans lick the flagpole.
              20 below - Iowans fly away to Mexico. People in Minnesota get out their winter coats.
              40 below - Hollywood disintegrates. Minnesota Girl Scouts are selling cookies door to door.
              60 below - Polar bears begin to evacuate the Arctic. Minnesota Boy Scouts postpone "winter survival" classes until it gets cold enough.
              80 below - Mount St. Helens freezes. People in Minnesota rent some videos.
              100 below - Santa Claus abandons the North Pole. Minnesotans get frustrated because they can't thaw the keg.
              297 below - Microbial life no longer survives in dairy products. Cows in Minnesota complain about farmers with cold hands.
              460 below - All atomic motion stops (absolute zero on the Kelvin Scale). People in Minnesota start saying, "Cold nuff for ya?"
              500 below - Hell freezes over. The Minnesota Vikings win the Super Bowl.

              What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
              they get smoked.

                Sudbury, Ontario

                Likes:
                -perfect city size. Has areas where you can get alot of shopping done, but also areas where it feels very quaint (sp?) and intimate.
                - enough to do so that you can't get bored
                - cops don't care a whole lot about the amount of parties or how loud they get
                - friendly people
                - only four hours away from TO
                - not much crime, at least not where I live

                Dislikes:
                - four hours away from TO and the closest major sports teams
                - the roads here are the worst in Ontario, possibly even in Canada
                - not a whole heck of alot of job opportunities
                - the whole city seems very spread out...have to drive at least 20 minutes for the best golf course and 30 for the best shopping areas

                    I would love it in Nashville, except for the Heat in the summer, other than that, there really is nothing that bugs me too much.

                        Yeah, I really don't find Nashville to be that cold in the winter TBH. Night life just really depends on where you are. There's also lots of good food and shopping places. I don't notice the rednecks as much, but maybe I'm immune since I've lived here most of my life. There are some really pitiful drivers here though.

                          Likes:
                          -Decent size city
                          -Plenty to do
                          -Not far from OSU and OU for partying plus UC is no slouch.
                          -Awesome Zoo/Museums
                          -Literally five minutes away from major sporting events(Reds, Bengals, Cyclones)
                          -Pretty good sports tradition at almost every level except the NFL.
                          -People are generally pretty down to earth and nice.

                          Dislikes:
                          -Downtown is pretty lame though the new Banks project should be pretty sweet.
                          -Borders Kentucky
                          -Weather and by that I mean we experience a huge difference with the changing of the seasons. Summers are very hot and humid while the winters can get pretty darn cold. Almost never really comfortable.
                          -People are pretty ignorant around here. Especially when it comes to sports.
                          -Cops are big time assholes especially within the city limits. Probably has something to do with the fact that most of them are German(Gestapo?). Haha jk, but they are absolute dicks.
