Summer fun or lawn care in Minnesota?

If you like to experience all four seasons to the extreme, you could do a lot worse than moving to Minnesota. Few states have the full range of conditions that Minnesotans enjoy (or endure, depending on your point of view). As an example, folks in the Twin Cities area of Minneapolis-Saint Paul look forward to an average high of 24 degrees in January, while July averages a high of 83.
