According to this Montreal is more humid than Toronto by .2 kpa. Which is weird because Toronto is by the giant lake.

Yeah, people who think the only options are Canada, Florida, and the desert.

Here in Vancouver, Palm Springs is popular. It's a short flight, or even a very doable drive. My connection to Palm Springs goes back to the early 1960's when family lived in California.
It's not my kind of place to stay more than a few days. Not great all year round...too hot in summer, and very chilly evenings at other times.

I prefer ocean side tropical for a holiday.

August Vancouver 72 S.F. 67

The fact it is hard for you to be objective about Vancouver confuses me. Why do you conveniently leave out winter temperature? Who cares about summer? The entire Canada has great summers and nobody is complaining summer isn't nice here.

Dec -March high in Vancouver 6.3, 6.9, 8.2, 10.3,
Dec - March high in San Fran 13.9, 13.8, 15.7, 16.6

need I say more?

I fail to see how you don't choose San Diego or Santa Barbara instead of going to Palms Springs and complaining about the heat.

Palm Springs doesn't have good weather. It is in the middle of a desert.

I was tired of the constant heat and desired cooler weather.

Palms Springs is just he type of place that people take about when they are looking for warmer climates.
San Diego or Santa Monica is never too hot or too cold in any month of the year. Maybe you should try that instead of somewhere in the desert? Nobody says higher temperature means better weather.

The fact that you forget what you actually posted confuses me. You DID say

" Plus, SF is still a LOT warmer than Vancouver, in any season. "

IN ANY SEASON!

Wrong.

Palm Springs is popular everywhere as a vacation spot. As a place to live, not so much. Its climate goes just a little beyond "a nice warm place to live."

In 2011, 1.6 million tourists visited Palm Springs, but the resident population was 44,500. That tells you a lot.

Read the post Botti.....I go to Palm Springs for family and friends.

I've BEEN going to San Diego and Santa Monica for over 50 years. I know the climate etc. My first visit was in 1963 as a child.

I still prefer a cooler climate and LOVE Vancouver's climate.

You seem to have an issue with that, by hinting that somehow we are delusional and defending something that is BEYOND your comprehension.

Don't be disingenuous. You set up Palm Springs as a typical alternative to Canada's long winters:

when the fact is that Palm Springs is too hot and dry for almost everyone.
