I think the difference in temperature/amount of snow between Ottawa and Kingston is marginal. Ottawa is slightly colder in winter and gets and additional 2 feet of snow, but I've been spending almost all my weekends in Kingston for the past 3 years (I live in Ottawa) and it's really only in March and April I see a difference. That's when the snow starts to melt in Kingston but there is still a noticeable snowpack in Ottawa.

Ottawa is often 3 or 4 degrees colder and has bigger snowbanks, but it's not something I find that noticeable as both cities have a nearly-permanent snow cover from December to March and both cities get cold in winter. The snowpack is thiner in Kingston and there are a few days per year where the temperature will be warm enough there so that they will get rain while Ottawa gets snow but it's really not that often.

I could provide the OP with my personal opinion about various things regarding life in Kingston, but since that's a old thread I won't.
