While the temperatures drop around Western Montana, and our heating bill begins to skyrocket we are curious to see if our city is anywhere on the list of The Coldest Cities in America. Heck, it sure does feel like one of them this week, no doubt.

So let's dig in and see if maybe lil' ol' Missoula made the cut. Here are, according to CNN Money Watch, the 25 coldest cities in America.

1 Duluth, MN -5.2°
2 Fargo, ND -4.1°
3 Bismarck, ND -0.9°
4 St. Cloud, MN 0.1°
5 Blaine, MN 2.7°
5 Coon Rapids, MN 2.7°
7 Apple Valley, MN 3.4°
7 Burnsville, MN 3.4°
7 Eagan, MN 3.4°
7 Lakeville, MN 3.4°
11 Rochester, MN 3.4°
12 Bloomington, MN 3.7°
12 Brooklyn Park, MN 3.7°
12 Eden Prairie, MN 3.7°
12 Maple Grove, MN 3.7°
12 Minneapolis, MN 3.7°
12 Minnetonka, MN 3.7°
12 Plymouth, MN 3.7°
19 Woodbury, MN 4.5°
20 Sioux Falls, SD 4.6°
21 La Crosse, WI 5.1°
22 St. Paul, MN 5.8°
23 Waterloo, IA 6.5°
24 Appleton, WI 6.8°
25 Madison, WI 6.9°

 

Frankly, I'm a bit surprised that Missoula is not anywhere close to the Top 25. Actually, we are #256 on another more detailed list at weather.com. But then again, I'm the same wuss that wears three layers in 65 degree heat. I suppose we should just count our blessings that we still do live in one of the best cities in the United States, come sleet, snow or even the most (slightly) frigid temperatures.
