No, it's not just you: This is the Worst Winter Ever in Minnesota.

Although it's something we all feel as soon as we walk outside, quantifying why this is the Worst Winter Ever isn't as straight forward.

Is it the snow? Is it the many days when the temperature never got above zero? Is it the sheer number of potholes?

It's all of those things. Here are the five signs this is the Worst Winter Ever in Minnesota.

5. It was all Obama could talk about when he visited St. Paul:
4. The guy who exposed Bill Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky didn't even need a link to verify what is already self-evident:

Considering there are still three calendar weeks of winter left on top of whatever follows, I would not get too worked up just yet.

What is this? The first two posts are opinionated tweets. The last two argue that the worst winters were actually in 1978 and 1916.

City Pages, have you ever lived here in early March before? Don't be silly. Sometimes it snows on the May Day Parade. Hunker down.

Snow isnt that big of deal in MN., Co. get's 3 feet in one day and people deal, cold isnt that big of a deal, especially when it warms up to -20 every other day in Mn.,...........what does SuCk is the combination of both and no way to RID the streets of black-grey-white-clear-tan-ice, so you dont feel like your driving on the Moon. WHich is why I bought a Mars Lunar Rover, when it gets REALLY bad, I break out my back up commuter ( a hoover craft ) and sit on a block of ice fishing for Bluegills and Walleye all day...Winter here is pretty easy actually........

And people gave me a hard time when I moved a year and a half ago citing Minnesota winters as my reason. I was born and raised there. Spent the first 33 years of my life there. And if I only see snow on mountains in the distance for the rest of my life I will die happy.

Well, Drudge says it's the worst winter in decades, so clearly it is NOT, because the dude never says the truth ever.

The 348 consecutive months of warmer than average temp world wide, has made you people weak.

Imo, I'd rather deal with wind chill than heat index. You can always throw more layers on in the winter. In the summer, the only thing you can do to stay comfortable is swim or stay in the ac.

As long as it goes away by April I am fine.  Just hate it when it lingers until May, last year's winter seemed never ending for that reason.

It's just winter. Something we deal with every year and it's different every year. I say as a true Minnesotan bring it on. I know eventually it will be over and we all will be complaining on how hot it is.

The skiers aren't complaining and neither are those with the jobs to make that happen!

I still think last winter was worse. If this winter goes until March, well....this year would be the winner in that case.
