See where Louisiana ranks on a list of states with most miserable summers

A new list posted by Thrillist ranking the U.S. states with the most miserable summers ranked Louisiana in a pretty predictable spot: No. 2.

“According to the many meteorologist conferences I frequent, there is a rule that if John Grisham has written a novel that has since been turned into a movie that takes place in your state, that state has to have a pretty shitty summer,” Thrillist said. “This is actually one of the core tenets of meteorological study. And as I recall with my nearly photographic memory of John Grisham novels that have been turned into films, The Pelican Brief features Julia Roberts as Darby Shaw, a Tulane Law student in NEW ORLEANS. And, as if that isn’t enough, The Client features a senator from LOUISIANA going missing. Don’t think I’m providing enough statistical data to back up my claims? Well how about this, taken from a city-data.com message board about unpleasant summers: ‘Arkansas and Louisiana feel like ovens 24 hours a day, even at nighttime during the summer.’ Sorry friends, but the Grisham Rule + message board statements from “AJF131” = facts.”

Right in front of Louisiana, with the most miserable summer in the U.S., is Mississippi.
