If we looked at a top-down view of the solar system, and Saturn and Neptune were both on the "right" side of the sun and Jupiter and Uranus were on the "left" side, Jupiter would be closer by several hundred million miles.
Oribital period really has to be taken into account in these questions, as does angle to the Plane of the Ecliptic.
And yes, I can feel it.
So. An 'oribital period' has WHAT to do with Uranus?
I guess you're saying that even Earth (happy birthday, BTW) could be closer to Uranus than Saturn, given the plane of the ecliptic, or whatever. I would venture to say that of all the places, Stockton would be the city closest to Uranus than any other as well.
