Question Grasping at straws Comment 1 of 1
Anyone having any luck with this puzzle?

The only thing I've been able to come up with thus far is that states with feature B can be abbreviated using their first four letters (Kent., Tenn., Conn., Minn.), in which case other states fitting the category would include Arizona, Colorado, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Oregon, and Washington. But this seems a very unsatisfying answer, not least because Kent. is not at all common (Kentucky is more commonly abbreviated Ky.).

States with feature A are all north of the Mason-Dixon line, but this seems too broad.

Ady, perhaps a hint is in order. :)
