Yeah, you thought there were only 4 seasons in Minnesota. Sure doesn't seem that way. It seems that Minnesota weather is all over the place. The good old North Country gives us a wide variety of temps, ranging from -20- to mid 90's or even warmer.

It may seem like maybe Spring might be just a few weeks away. Don't be fooled! Mother Nature is a crafty jokester!

So, to me, it seems there are at least 12 seasons in Minnesota;

Winter; We all know this one.  Bitter cold, snow and ice. By far, my least favorite time of the year.

Fool's Spring: Sure feels like Spring, but Minnesotans know Mother Nature is just messing with us.

Second Winter; How about another blizzard just to show who's boss?  This can be downright depressing.

Spring of Deception;  Aw yeah, now we're talkin'. Nice temps. Yea, Spring is in the air.

Third Winter; Hey, how about just one more round of snow?

The Pollenating; After all the crappy weather has kept your sinuses guessing, it's now time to let allergies kick your butt.

Actual Spring; The trees are budding and occasional rain showers are washing away all the Winter slime. Yea, it's here!

Summer;  Mild daytime temps and cool nights. Bugs have figured out where you are.

Hell's Front Porch: Hot and humid with the occasional thunder boomer. Maybe even a tornado or two.  Great time to get out on the lake and enjoy being scantily clad.

False Fall;  That's where we are now. Cooler temps and time to get the warmer wardrobe out but DO NOT put away the Summer stuff quite yet.

Second Summer; It's back!  Enjoy the great temps and take advantage of the mild weather to clean up the leaves that have given up for the year.

Actual Fall; Finally here, that grease slide to Winter we call Fall. R.I.P. bugs

And the cycle continues.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
