Jeff Foxworthy talked about Wisconsin:

If you're proud that your region makes the national news 96 nights each year because Park Falls is the coldest spot in the nation, you might live in Wisconsin.

Our 4 seasons are:
Nice summer,Hotter than hell summer,Nice/rainy Summer,and a cold summer. not really cold,it may get to 40. If were so lucky. So basicly,we have perfect weather year round for a hotrodder,except the humidity.
